That includes a strike in the Champions League final on Saturday that cancelled out Real Madrid’s lead to take the game to extra time. Diego Simeone’s side eventually missed out on the European title in a penalty shootout.

According to Emanuele Guilianelli, who has worked for FourFourTwo and La Gazzetta dello Sport amongst other publications, Arsenal have spoken to Atletico regarding a potential summer transfer for Carrasco.

And word has it the La Liga outfit are prepared to do business with the north Londoners, should they meet the 22-year-old winger’s £15million-to-£19million price-tag.

Arsenal have already sealed one summer signing in Borussia Dortmund skipper Granit Xhaka, as confirmed by the club last month.
