Arsenal have had numerous injuries since football has returned but it looks like their supporters might have some positive news on defender Cedric Soares.
The right-back joined on loan in the January transfer window and has recently signed on a free transfer from fellow Premier League side Southampton. However, he has yet to play a match for the Gunners due to his injury struggles, per Transfermarkt.
Arsenal have posted some team news in the build-up to this evening’s Premier League fixture against Norwich, which declared that Cedric is back in full training and available for selection following a facial injury.
Although he may not replace Hector Bellerin in the starting lineup, the Portuguese international is a great option to have from the bench, and it would be a perfect time to get him some match fitness as we prepare for the final seven games of the season. This would mean that he could have a decent run of games behind his belt to be a useful asset for next season.
The experienced defender has made 138 appearances in the Premier League and therefore provides manager Mikel Arteta with some much-needed experienced squad depth. Arsenal may still be beset by injury problems but at least the update on Cedric provides a lift.
Gunners fans, how much of a boost will it be to have Cedric back available? Comment below with your views!
