Arsenal fans react to report about Cedric Soares' stance on his future

Arsenal defender Cedric Soares has been linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium.

Even though the transfer window is closed in England and across Europe, it’s still open in Turkey.

According to, Fenerbahce are interested in signing the ace before the deadline later next week.

However, the Portugal international has no intention of leaving north London. Cedric is keen on fighting for his place after the signing of Takehiro Tomiyasu.

There was change at right-back on transfer deadline day. Hector Bellerin departed for Real Betis, whilst the Japan international was signed for £19.8m from Bologna.

Tomiyasu is a versatile figure and can feature at both centre-half and right-back. However, after Bellerin’s departure, it would be a shock if he did not start on the right flank, given his career so far.

Cedric should be third-choice right-back for Arsenal amid report

It’s always nice to hear that a player wants to commit to a club.

In that regard, there are no question marks over the former Southampton player. His commitment has been sensational since he arrived on an initial loan deal last year.

But, his quality is severely lacking.

He endured nightmare games against both Chelsea and Manchester City in what was a lesson to Mikel Arteta.

And after it was confirmed Ainsley Maitland-Niles will be staying and competing this season, Cedric should be the third-choice right-back.
