The former Atletico Madrid star swapped the Spanish capital for China when he joined Dalian Yifang in 2018.
The 25-year-old has spent nearly 18 months in the far-east but has seen the likes of Nico Gaitain leave the club and now wants to return to Europe ahead of Euro 2020.
Arsenal were keen on signing Carrasco in January but turned to Denis Suarez instead.

”Maybe this summer it is possible. If it is a good thing and I want to go, maybe I can speak with the president.
‘I try to do my best because I am a professional for my team and after we can think about a solution. If I have a lot of teams who want me but the president decides I have to stay, I cannot do anything.
‘All that you want is to be close to your family, and to go back to Europe is a good solution.
‘I’m OK here, the club is good with me, the players and fans also are nice with me.
‘But you know, when you are far from your family, and I think I can do good things in the European game, I am thinking it’s a solution if I can go back.’
