Arsenal, Chelsea invited to bid for Atletico Madrid firebrand Carrasco

Arsenal and Chelsea are keeping tabs on Yannick Carrasco's situation at Atletico Madrid.

AS says Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone is prepared to cash in on Carrasco in January.

Carrasco's talent isn't in question, and he has attracted interest from Arsenal, Chelsea and Bayern Munich previously.

However he has reportedly been involved in a number of dressing room bust-ups during 2017, falling out with teammates Koke and Gabi, as well as the club's fitness coach, Oscar Ortega.

Now Simeone has accepted that a parting of the ways is best, having already secured a deal to land ex-Sevilla star Vitolo - who due to Atleti's transfer ban has spent the first half of the season on loan at Las Palmas.
