Arsenal miss out on Yannick Carrasco
If the Sun on Sunday are to be believed, Arsenal’s hopes of signing Belgium international Yannick Carrasco are over.
Arsenal reportedly lack the funds to seal the Carrasco deal. Readers are told:
Arsenal have missed out on signing Yannick Carrasco with the Belgium star set to join another club on the continent.
Emery has been forced to plot a major overhaul of his squad on a tiny budget this summer, and the valuation of Carrasco would blow most of it in one deal.
The Sun claim that Carrasco has a 30 million pound price tag.

Will Arsenal sign Bournemouth’s Ryan Fraser?
Another Arsenal target this summer is Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser.
In a second blow for Arsenal fans, the Sun believe that Fraser will stay at Bournemouth this summer:
The Cherries have remained firm in insisting the 25-year-old will not be sold, even though he is about to enter the last 12 months of his current deal with the club.
The Sunday Times also post an update on Fraser:
Bournemouth maintain a new contract offer for Ryan Fraser is still ‘on the table’ and the Scotland winger is ‘an integral part’ of their squad as speculation continues over his future.
Links to PSG’s Presnel Kimpembe
PSG could win the race to sign Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt this summer.
If that happens, which defenders could lose their spot in the PSG XI?
Unconfirmed rumours, spread by the likes of Get French Football News, quoting Soccer Link, suggest that Arsenal could sign PSG’s Presnel Kimpembe, if the de Ligt deal happens.
Kimpembe, 23, is under contract at PSG until 2023.
