Arsenal have reportedly agreed a contract with long-time target Yannick Carrasco to take him to the Emirates.
However, he is still far from certain to become the club’s first signing of the summer.
Carrasco, 25, was first linked with a loan move to Unai Emery’s team in January, but his employers were unwilling to sanction a temporary deal.
Arsenal took Denis Suarez instead, much to the annoyance of Sven Mislintat who preferred the Belgian, but Suarez is now back at Barcelona after a disappointing stint in north London.
SportMediaSet claim that Carrasco has agreed terms with the Gunners over a move to the Emirates.
