Arsenal star Cedric Soares wanted by Fulham in January transfer with full-back not in Mikel Arteta's first-team plans | The Sun

ARSENAL defender Cedric Soares is wanted by Fulham in January, according to reports.

The Portugal international has been restricted to a bit-part role for the Gunners this season, with Ben White becoming the club's No.1 right-back.

Cedric featured in every league game from February onwards last term but White's emergence on the right has completely reduced his game-time.

The ex-Southampton man has featured just four times with his only start coming in the Carabao Cup defeat to Brighton.

As a result, Sky Sports claim that Fulham are prepared to offer him a route out of the Emirates when the market opens for business.

The report states the West Londoners were keen in the summer window and have once again expressed their interest in the 31-year-old.

Fulham are in desperate need of a right-back with Bobby Decordova-Reid forced to play there on several occasions this term.

Marco Silva does have Kenny Tete at his disposal, but injuries have restricted the Dutchman to just eight league starts.

Meanwhile, summer arrival Kevin Mbabu has made just ONE start and has failed to impress.

Cedric would bring a wealth of experience to Craven Cottage having won 34 caps for Portugal, while he's played 158 games in the Prem.
