Fulham: Cottagers ‘in talks’ to sign Cedric Soares

Fulham: Cottagers 'in talks' to sign Cedric Soares - Fulham News

Fulham are ‘in talks’ to sign Arsenal defender Cedric Soares this month, according to Sky Sports reporter Lyall Thomas.

The Lowdown: Long-standing interest

The Portugal international’s contract at the Emirates Stadium isn’t set to expire until 2024, but he’s been generating interest having fallen out of favour under Mikel Arteta at the top of the Premier League.

The Cottagers made several enquiries for the right-back last summer and were reported to be reigniting their interest in the winter where there has now been a huge breakthrough.

The Latest: Fulham in discussions

Taking to Twitter, Thomas revealed that Fulham are finally in negotiations with Cedric regarding a potential move after being given the green light by the Gunners.

“#FulhamFC are in talks with Cedric Soares over personal terms. #ArsenalFC gave the player permission to speak to them.”

Would Cedric be a good signing for Fulham?





The Verdict: No-brainer

Cedric has been praised for his ‘brilliant’ delivery into the box by Sam Dean, and Fulham completing a deal for him is an absolute no-brainer when you consider how much he could flourish under Marco Silva.

The Singen native has racked up 30 assists and even scored seven goals himself throughout his career, alongside ranking in the 93rd percentile for passes attempted, showing his desire to get down the flank and make an impact linking up in the final third.

Cedric also shares the same agent as Willian so this could be a huge advantage for the club when it comes to getting this move over the line before the end of the window.
