It has been claimed in the media that Manchester City have put defender ARSENAL target Joao Cancelo up for sale this summer
This season Mikel Arteta really has got many fans excited – with the Gunners now in second place in the Premier League with just five games to play – although Manchester City are now favourites for that title.
There will be Champions League football next season for Arsenal, no matter if they win the League, and Arteta knows that he will need to add to his squad in order to keep challenging for the titles.
Fabrizio Romano has reported that the Gunners are interested in the star, with Arteta and Cancelo working together for a few months at Man City before the Spaniard left to take charge of Arsenal.
Now – The Sun has revealed that Manchester City has now transfer-listed the Portuguese international.
The reports adds that Man City feel that Cancelo no longer has a future at the club and are looking to cash in.
Iomie Stanley has insisted he can “definitely see” ARSENAL swooping for the defender –
When asked if a move for Cancelo is a real possibility for Arsenal, Stanley said: “Yeah, I can definitely see the Gunners board making a cheeky offer.
“I don’t think Man City will want to gift any more players to Arsenal – but Arteta will know him inside out after working with him – and would believe that he could improve the squad.
“I think it’d be a great signing.
“They need a right-back. Ben White has had a great season, but if you get Cancelo – you get more quality and a player that has competed at the top level, been successful and won titles
“I’m sure Arsenal would love to get that done if he becomes available. in the summer window, but it may also be a struggle to convince Man City to sell such a world class player.
‘If he does leave, it will probably be for Bayern – but he is a player that Arteta would love at the Emirates.’
