Belgium international Yannick Carrasco is looking to depart Chinese Super League side DL Yifang after admitting negotiations with another club are ‘progressing well.’
The winger, who was linked with a move to Arsenal in January, has been touted to move back to Europe.
Unai Emery considered signing the former Monaco man in January, but opted instead to sign Denis Suarez on loan from Barcelona.

The 25-year-old had a dismal spell in north London, making just four Premier League appearances.
Speaking to Belgian website Nieuwsblad, Carrasco said: ‘There is now an offer on the table and the negotiations with my agent are progressing well.
‘I am the most important player in the club, but I hope the chairman understands me.’

‘From a family point of view, I would rather play in Europe and stay closer to my family. The adjustment for my family was also difficult over there.
‘I have become a lot more mature and have learned a lot. Also on the field, where I had to take my responsibility and the team had to bear. But my wish now is to return.’
Belgian news outlets have suggested it is Arsenal who have renewed their interest in Carrasco, who has been capped 35 times by his country.
