Arsenal reportedly emerge as favourites to sign Belgium international winger Yannick Carrasco, who has also been linked with Manchester United and AC Milan.

Arsenal have reportedly emerged as frontrunners in the race to sign Belgium international winger Yannick Carrasco.

Carrasco currently plays for Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang following his move from Atletico Madrid last February.

However, the 25-year-old is understood to be keen to return to Europe after less than a year in China, and the likes of Manchester United and AC Milan have been credited with an interest.

Sky Sport Italia reports that Arsenal are currently the favourites to secure his signature, though, having already made initial contact.

The Gunners are in the market for a winger this month following a season-ending injury to Danny Welbeck, and Carrasco is thought to have given his approval to the move.

The Belgian is keen to play in the Premier League, while AC Milan could also struggle to afford a deal for him considering he is on around £170,000 per week in China.
