Carrasco is believed to be seeking a move back to Europe after a year with Chinese Super League club Dalian Yifang and the player’s his wife, Noemie Happart, has confirmed Arsenal and United’s interest in the 25-year-old.
“Yes, they are very interested. I do not hide it, but nothing is signed.”
She added that she and Carrasco are both keen to return to Europe ‘to be closer to friends and family’.
It’s hard to see Arsenal complete a move for Carrasco with no funds available this month, unless of the course the club decide to offload a few fringe players.
