Yannick Carrasco’s wife says both Arsenal and Manchester United are interested in signing the winger and confirmed they want to leave China and return to Europe.

The Belgium international made the surprising decision to leave Atletico Madrid for Dalian Yifang a year ago, though he is believed to be unhappy in the Far East and is actively looking to move in the January transfer window.

Both Arsenal and United have been offered his services, though Dalian Yifang have little desire to sell him and the Gunners are only able to bring in players on loan this month.

‘There are a lot of things going on, he has been called by a lot of clubs,’ Happart explained during an interview on Belgian TV show RTBF on Saturday.

‘A lot of clubs are interested, nothing concrete, nothing has been signed yet.’

Asked about the reports linking Carrasco with Arsenal and United, she continued: ‘Yes, they are very interested. I do not hide it, but nothing is signed.’

Happart also added that the couple want to return to Europe ‘to be closer to family and friends’.

Carrasco scored seven times in 25 matches for Dalian Yifang, helping them avoid relegation, and is on a massive salary, though he would be prepared to take a significant pay cut to join Arsenal or United.
