Roma open Carrasco talks

Roma are in talks to sign Atletico Madrid attacker Yannick Carrasco on loan with a view to a permanent deal, claims .

Arsenal and Chelsea had been linked with a move for Carrasco following reports Atletico are looking to offload the Belgium international.

Real Betis are ready to make an offer to sign Paris Saint-Germain winger Lucas Moura, according to  Le Parisien .

The Brazilian reportedly turned down a loan move to Betis in December, but his agent was invited to watch the game at home to Barcelona last weekend.
