Arsenal target Carrasco in Twitter outburst as player eyes England move
Belgium international attacker Yannick Carrasco, a long-term target for Premier League giants Arsenal, has hit out at current club Dalian Yinfang after the team decided to suspend the player. Carrasco was delayed in his return from international duty and missed a key game in the Chinese Super League.
Carrasco has slammed the club on Twitter, posting: "The attitude of some club's leaders and teammates towards me is incomprehensible to me given my commitment and performance with the team so far.
"The team needs me and I want to help the team. This problem need to be solved."
Arsenal are edging closer to a deal for the Belgian and are ready to pay upward of 55 million euros to sign the former Monaco and Atletico Madrid star.
Carrasco's club Dalian also commented on the Carrasco situation, saying:
"Yannick Carrasco of the Dalian Football Club was absent from the away game against Hebei China Fortune and missed training.
"The club now imposes the following penalties on him: Order Carrasco to apologise to the team within three days and stop training."
