    ARSENAL are rivalling Monaco and Sevilla for CSKA Moscow's Fedor Chalov – the Russian Premier League's top scorer.

    And Sky Sports say twice-capped Russian Chalov is under increasing consideration.

    The 21-year-old hit 15 goals in 30 games this season, netting against Arsenal in the Europa League quarter-finals.

    ARSENAL target Yannick Carrasco has admitted he is undergoing negotiations with a club after looking to leave Chinese Super League side DL Yifang.

    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.”
