The Belgian international has scored 11 goals in 31 games in China, after 23 goals in 123 games for Atletico Madrid in Spain. He started his career in Monaco, where he scored 20 goals in 105 games.

Carrasco has also been capped 31 times by Belgium, scoring five goals for his country.

Bayern are said to be showing an interest in Carrasco due to Manchester City not wanting to sell Leroy Sane this summer. The report also claims that PSG’s Julian Draxler and RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner are targets for Bayern as they weigh up their options.
