Simeone urges Arsenal to bid for Atletico Madrid attacker Carrasco

Arsenal are weighing up a late winter market move for Atletico Madrid attacker Yannick Carrasco.

Carrasco has endured a tough season under Atletico manager Diego Simeone at the Wanda Metropolitano with just seven starts in the league.

Simeone is open to the idea of selling Carrasco this winter and made the 24-year-old available in the January transfer window.

El Mundo Deportivo says Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is keen on a deal after being impressed with his displays as a Monaco player at the Emirates Stadium back in 2015.

Rather than move now, Arsenal are willing to bid £44m in the summer as they continue to reinvent their frontline.
