Arsenal have moved a step closer to signing Sporting Lisbon defender Cedric after the player’s agent talked up a January switch to the Emirates, with the Gunner being strongly linked with a move for the right-back, who is rated as one of the best full-backs in Europe at present.
Arsene Wenger is reported to be considering meeting his £25.5 million release clause in January, and Cedric’s agent won’t rule out the transfer happening.
When asked about Arsenal interest Cedric’s agent Miguel Veloso said: “We are happy his work is being recognised.”
“Right now, we continue to negotiate the renewal of the contract between Cedric and Sporting. But nothing is agreed.”
“All scenarios are possible [in January].”
