Premier League trio Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United will reportedly fight it out for the services of Atletico Madrid forward Yannick Ferreira Carrasco.

The Belgian international has had limited playing time under Diego Simeone this campaign, and Atleti could be tempted to cash in on the player considering their move to a new stadium in the summer

According to The Sun, the Spanish giants would be willing to take a £40m sum for the talented attacker despite him having a £85m release clause in his contract.

Carrasco, who joined the Capital outfit from AS Monaco in 2015, is also said to be on the radar of Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich.

The 23-year-old has not been a prolific goalscorer over his career, but his contribution from the wide positions have influenced the play on the field.

Carrasco is also capable of featuring as the lone striker upfront owing to his pace, and this is something the likes of United and Arsenal may be on the look out for.
