Yannick Carrasco?

Don’t know much about him.
For anyone who has seen him and can rate him, does he fill our need as a tricky winger?

Are we supposed to be in for him then?

I'd be happy if so. I saw him a few times playing in La Liga for Atletico Madrid and thought he looked pretty good.

Apparently not settled in China.

I think you guys have seen him. He scored a very nice goal against us when he was playing for Monaco in the UCL. Remember the one we lost at home that almost knocked us out? (luckily we then won at their ground to get thru to the quarters.

Watched him a bit at Atletico, I am really not sure about him. Good size, a bit tall but looks a bit gangly sometimes, not great dribbler, not very good at beating a man, but can be a threat in the final third. I guess he is a cheaper alternative to Pepe or Sarr in terms of transfer fees, but not salary wise as he is reportedly on insane wages in China (as is every non-Chinese player there).

If we are after China based players why not bring in Oscar as replacement of Ramsey instead of Denis Suarez, Oscar seems to be lighting up the Chinese league with 19 assists 12 goals n winning the league. Although he's among the top 4 wages in the world (Sm105)

Good player but we haven't got a pot to p*ss in and he is going to be on astronomical wages.

We won at their place but went out on goal difference mate.

Another Brazilian flop Pato looks good im that league. Says it all. Oscar is shite. I remember when people on here tried to tell me he's better than Courtinho lol!

I wanted Carrasco at Arsenal before he moved to Atletico. He was somewhat underwhelming at Madrid though. I think he has enough quality that it would be a good signing but I really don't think it will happen.



Dream acquisitions:

CB: Issa Diop
RB: Aaron Wan-Bissaka
DM: Franck Kessie/Yves Bissouma/Ndidi
Wing/Attack: Anton Rebic/Pepe

I believe Carrasco is on just over £9 million a year...

If we as is being put about cannot buy Suarez because of FFP how can we sign Carasco or anyone else for that matter.Apparently it's to do with the wage bill eg paying a player 330000 who only plays when he feels like it



Under new managment

You are right mate. I got it mixed up. Thanks for clearing that up Matt.
