Arsenal under Manager Unai Emery having missed out on the Top 4 spot this season, now are reportedly going to miss out on their main transfer target this term after failing to match the 30 Million valuation set by Dalian Yifang for the services of Yannick Carrasco. It was reported here previously that Carrasco was going to sign for the Gunners after previously wanting to return to Europe. Arsenal wanted to sign Carrasco on loan in January 2019 as well but could not move ahead with the deal back then.
According to a report, Unai Emery has been given a very measly transfer budget to sign players after having missed out on Champions League football this season and the Gunners are refusing to spend the majority of it on just one deal. Carrasco meanwhile is now set to join another side in Europe, while Arsenal are being forced to seek other options in the market to add to their squad.
Arsenal’s another option would be Bournemouth’s Ryan Fraser, who is valued at 30 Million as well. But the Cherries have remained firm in insisting the 25-year-old is not for sale at any price, even though he is about to enter the last year of his current contract with the club. In the PL this season, nobody has created more chances than the Scottish International and this has resulted in Bournemouth offer an contract extension to Fraser in order to ward off Arsenal’s interest.
Having seen removed from the picture, Bayern will now surely look to make a move for the Belgian International, who are lacking pacey wingers after both Robben and Ribery decided not to renew their contracts with the German Club. Bayern have Serge Gnabry but Niko Kovac would like to use him as a No.9 just like Joachin Low in the Germany National Team.
Dalian Yifang are playing hard ball with Carrasco but their valuation of Carrasco won’t be an issue for FC Bayern, who are always ready to make smart purchases when it comes to securing their primary targets.

Arsenal and Unai Emery will be hoping to generate funds by selling certain first team players who do not have a future under him like Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Torreira, with the latter himself having recently admitting to not being able to sustain life in the English climate and could be sacrificed with AC Milan showing an interest in taking him back to Italy.
