Arsenal right-back attracting plenty of interest
Arsenal right-back Cedric Soares is reportedly attracting plenty of interest from Premier League and European clubs.
The Portugal international spent the previous campaign on loan with Fulham where he made just 12 appearances in all competitions.
Soares has now entered the final year of his Gunners deal, and the club are quite clear that they would like to cash in on him.
Informal talks have already taken place between his agent and several teams, and the Gunners are braced to receive an offer soon.
Soares is currently the fourth-choice right-back in the squad behind the likes of Ben White, Jurrien Timber and Takehiro Tomiyasu.
He was deemed surplus to requirements last season, and there is no way back. He has been left out of the club's US pre-season tour.
Aside from Soares, the likes of Rob Holding, Nuno Tavares, Folarin Balogun and Nicolas Pepe are expected to be sold soon.
Balogun is the most lucrative player that could head for the exit door. Arsenal are eyeing close to £50m to sanction his sale.
