Arsenal desperate to offload un-needed defender this month

Arsenal has some top players on their books now, which is why they are at the top of the Premier League table.

Mikel Arteta has a group of talents he strongly believes can get the job done for him and they have delivered for the Gunners so far.

However, not everyone in their squad is good enough, with some players are not in the manager’s plan at all.

One man in that category is Cedric Soares, who is not even the second choice right back at the club.

The Gunners have used Ben White as their main right-back this season, with Takehiro Tomiyasu serving as his deputy in the position.

This means Soares has hardly played and Arsenal wants to offload him desperately, as reported by The Sun.

However, his departure is being held back by the huge wages he receives from the Gunners, which could see him stay until the summer.

Fulham is his main suitor now, but the Cottagers want him to take a considerable pay cut before they finalise a move for him.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Soares must be willing to take a pay cut to complete the transfer if he is interested in playing regularly at another club.

However, footballers can be stubborn and not want to lose money by joining another club.

  1. It is becoming a regular occurrence players leaving Arsenal and has to under go significant pay cut, I was shock to learned of Bellerin current salary at Barcelona.

  2. Did Fulham pay you to write this? Arsenal “desperate” sounds like a hit job to me. They’re still playing in 4 competitions what makes you think they’re desperate to thin their squad? For the right price yes but not desperate. Please

  3. Yes! Cedric Soares could be stubborn and obstinate to dig-in his heals at Arsenal. To not want to give up the overbloted wages he earns at Arsenal. But wait till next summer when his contract at the club expires.
    This is the danger in paying over the odds wages to average players. Which Arsenal MUST desist from doing henceforth with. .however, I believe if Arsenal want to move on Soares this Jan window. They’ll move him on to make space for the new signing. As they won’t mind to give it what it’ll take to move him on. And move him on,
    Arsenal who have moved on their players before no matter their status. Will also move on Soares this winter window if they want to.

  4. Speaking of Fulham,I don’t know what Marco Silva is doing with our former players,but it seems to work! both Wilian and Leno have been performing well.Leno looks like a real bargain at 3M(possibly rising to 8M with add-ons since they’ll stay up this season!)
