Arsenal boss targets Champions League heartbreaker

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is eyeing a sensational move for Monaco’s Yannick Ferreira Carrasco, who last week helped his side knock the Gunners out of the Champions League, according to reports from The Metro.

The 21-year-old featured in both legs of the teams’ last-16 clash, scoring in the Emirates Stadium encounter as the Ligue 1 outfit triumphed on away goals – the aggregate score was 3-3.

And it appears that his showings caught Wenger’s eye, with the Frenchman keen on the youngster.

The Belgium U-21 international is hailed as one of the Mediterranean side’s best talents, even though they possess a star-studded squad thanks to their Russian backing.

Wenger may look to test Monaco’s willingness to keep their man at the end of the season, with the London side looking likely to once again receive the financial boost top four football brings.
