Arsenal are reportedly on the cusp of signing Yannick Ferreira Carrasco from Chinese Super League side Dalian Yifang this summer.

The Belgian is understood to have already agreed personal terms with the Gunners and it now appears that the club are sorting out a fee with Dalian.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the north London side have the complete satisfaction of the attacker and they are confident of landing his signature in the coming days.

Dalian are understood to demand around £27m to part ways with their winger and the Gunners are likely to meet the requirements with Unai Emery keen on pursuing a specialist winger ahead of next season.

Arsenal are said to be working on a limited £40m budget for the summer and the arrival of new signings should coincide with the departure of a few players from the first-team squad.

Mohamed Elneny, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Mesut Ozil are among the high-profile players linked with potential departures, though they have been no suitors mentioned in the media.
