Arsenal right-back Cedric Soares looks set to leave the Emirates, with a “host” of teams keen on securing his services

A return to Portugal could be on the cards for the 32-year-old with the likes of Porto, Sporting Lisbon and Benfica said to be weighing up moves for the defender, who is earning £75,000 a week. Villarreal and a number of Premier League clubs are also said to be keen on snapping him up.

After returning from his loan spell from Fulham at the end of last season, Cedric was present for the start of pre-season at London Colney but he was left out of the Gunners’ tour of the United States, which suggested that a departure was likely. Fans on Twitter are hoping his sale can be finalised soon to free up funds for further signings:
