Personal demands could spoil Soares move from Arsenal

Cedric Soares’ move from Arsenal to Fulham could collapse over personal demands as it emerges the Cottagers are struggling to match his request.

After Mikel Arteta converted Ben White to his preferred right back, the Portuguese defender has been pushed further down on the pecking order at the Emirates this season.

Soares is now looking to leave so that he can get regular playing time, and Fulham is willing to offer him the playing chance he needs.

However, a report in The Sun reveals the progress of the deal is being held up by Fulham’s inability to meet his salary demands.

While both parties continue to talk, it could be the sticking point that eventually breaks down the deal if things do not change.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Arsenal is one of the biggest clubs in the world, and Fulham will struggle to pay the same salary as them.

If Soares is serious about leaving the Emirates, he might have to lower his demands. Otherwise, he will be stuck on the Arsenal bench for the rest of his deal.

Another solution could be Arsenal agreeing to subsidise his salary until his contract with them finishes. If that also does not work, then he will have to wait for another suitor.

  1. Well we reap what we sow. Poor finance management by the Arsenal team and whoever sanctioned his salary.

    I thought this poor financial and contract management debacle would come to an end when the Great Arsene Wenger left.

    Seems the management team learned nothing.

    1. It was a spot-on transfer we needed RB cover at the time but couldn’t afford high transfer fees/wages and he’s done everything we’d expected of him when he signed. Two players above him at RB were signed afterwards and 1 was CB all last year.

      We’ve moved on a bit now in our development but he played his part. The fact Fulham still wants him is proof enough, he’s not fielding offers from the MLS.

      Unless we sign an LCB or RB in January Cedric leaving would leave us short at the back. Why I always paid attention to any LCB rumours as a January LCB signing would free us up to sell Cedric. Then in the summer we could sell Holding and add a RB or bring Cuffy into the frame.

      If as reported but since quiet N’dicka rumours are true that is a solution that way but not in January.

      1. Agree on soares – his solid performances have gone under the radar because he rarely excelled, but he rarely let us down either. Every squad needs at least a couple of players like that.
