Arsenal are in talks to sign Belgian winger Yannick Carrasco from Chinese side Dalian Yifang, according to Sky in Italy.
The Gunners are understood to have turned to the 25 year old after they were frustrated in their attempts to sign Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan.
Arsenal made an offer to take the Croatia international on loan with a view to a permanent deal in the summer, according to Sky in Italy, but the Serie A side turned it down.
