Arsenal considering signing ‘Man City headache’…”because of freshman injury”

Arsenal is preparing a ‘surprise signing’.

“Arsenal are considering a move for Joao Cancelo (29, Manchester City),” according to soccer media outlet 90MIN.

Kancelu was once the ace of City’s defense. He mesmerized Premier League fans with his attacking prowess, which was uncharacteristic of a flanker. He has a sharp kick and link-up play, and his personal discipline makes him a great defender. Versatile enough to play on both flanks, as well as as a defensive midfielder or flanker. His versatility has earned him the affection of Pep Guardiola.

But the tide turned last season. He lost his place in the Man City starting lineup and was looking for a new team. Last winter, he went on a half-season loan to Bayern Munich. In the process, he unilaterally demanded a transfer from the club. City and its fans can no longer look at Kancelu with a straight face.

After a so-so season in Munich, he returned to City. However, he still doesn’t seem to have a place in the team and is likely to leave this summer. 스포츠토토

Barcelona and Arsenal were interested in him, but the deal fell through. City rejected Barcelona’s offer, and Arsenal turned their attention to signing Wierien Timber.

But then a twist happened. Arsenal lost Timber in the first round of the Premier League on December 12 against Nottingham Forest. He suffered an untimely injury during the game. He was later diagnosed with an anterior cruciate ligament injury and was expected to be out for a long time.

Suddenly, the Gunners are back in the transfer market. A replacement for Timber is urgently needed. And they”ve renewed their interest in Kancelu. The player, who can play both right and left back, has been touted as a possible replacement for Timber.
