Cedric Soares could be shown the exit door before he has even made a first-team appearance for Arsenal with reports that his contract is set to expire on June 30. Arsenal’s interest in Cedric was a surprise for his parent club AFC Southampton in late-January.
The Portugal international was due to leave Southampton on a free during the summer transfer window and Saint Boss Ralph Hasenhuttl was struggling to attract suitors for the right back who had slipped down the pecking order at St Mary’s stadium.
However, the Gunners showed up and came to their rescue, taking the German born on loan while promising to pay every penny of his real money online casinos £65,000-a-week wages. The former Sporting Lisbon and Inter Milan speedster also set the north London giants back a further £1 million, thanks to a rather substantial loan fee.
Arsenal move for him then looked questionable at the time, given that the Euro 2016 winner has not been at his best for about two years now.
And, with Southampton’s disastrous January deals for Kim Kallstrom and Denis Suarez still fresh in the mind, history might not look too fondly on Cedric’s short-lived spell at the Emirates either. The 28-year-old, according to online casinos uk has not even made an appearance in red and white thanks to injury.
According to Goal, the tabloid are reporting that Cedric’s current contract is due to expire in a fortnight, and he could actually bid farewell to Arsenal without registering a single appearance for the Premier League giants. At least Kallstrom and Suarez got on the pitch albeit briefly for Southampton.
In other gooner news, Hector Bellerin has strongly been linked with Italian giants in summer transfer window. Since joining Arsenal way back in 2011, the former Spain international has been an instrumental part of the Gunners back-line. Despite injury plaguing his season, until the postponement, it is said that manager Mikel Arteta rates the Spaniard highly.
According to a report in the Mirror, Inter Milan are emerging as the club that will attempt to lure Bellerin away when the transfer window opens this summer. Arsenal reportedly want Bellerin to extend his contract with an extension to his 2023 deal expiry, but it’s said that the Spaniard wants to evaluate how things progress for the rest of this season under Arteta before making a decision.
