But with Unai Emery only amassing a budget of £45m after failing on last season’s two main fronts, outlaying such a sum on a position that may not even be a priority this summer has left any hopeful Gunners fans pretty downbeat over fulfilling Carrasco’s supposed wishes in giving him a route back to European football.
Carrasco would arrive with previous against Arsenal in Europe – scoring a crucial away goal in the Champions League during his Monaco days, and was part of the Atletico Madrid squad that saw The Gunners off on their way to last year’s Europa League.
But after The Gunners were potentially outpriced by the valuation of the £18m-rated Belgian, supporters are not getting their hopes up of securing his signature:
Arsenal can’t afford to spend £30m ????
