Why Arsenal & AC Milan both lost in the Yannick Carrasco transfer chase



Arsenal & Yannick Carrasco

According to the BBC’s David Ornstein, Arsenal’s hopes of signing Belgian winger Yannick Carrasco are dead.

Unai Emery has been chasing a new winger in the January window, however that’s not going to be Carrasco.

Carrasco’s agent revealed on Wednesday that time was running out for the Gunners to get the deal done.

While the BBC have now confirmed that “Carrasco to Arsenal (is) off”.

Carrasco did want Arsenal move

Ornstein has confirmed that 25-year-old Carrasco was keen on switching to the Gunners.

However Arsenal failed to agree terms with the player’s Chinese club, Dalian Yifang. Reportedly Arsenal’s loan offer was “far too low” for the Chinese.

That’s left Ornstein wondering whether Arsenal’s “recent interest was as serious as it seemed early (January).”

AC Milan also lose

On Wednesday, reports also surfaced that AC Milan were looking at signing Carrasco.

Former Arsenal CEO Ivan Gazidis is now the principle deal-maker for the Rossoneri.

However Ornstein has also confirmed that Carrasco won’t be moving to Milan either.

Will Arsenal sign Ivan Perisic?

On Wednesday night, Ornstein also shot down that possible deal.

Perisic looks set to stay at Inter Milan as Arsenal failed to agree terms with the Italians.
