Agent confirms talks in progress over deal as Arsenal boss closes in on £25.5 million deal

Reports have claimed Arsenal have moved a step closer to signing Sporting Lisbon defender Cedric.

The Gunners have been strongly linked with a move for right-back Cedric, who is rated as one of the best full-backs in Europe at present.

Now Cedric’s agent won’t rule out the transfer happening in the January window.

As quoted on the Metro website, Miguel Veloso said: “We are happy his work is being recognised.

“Right now, we continue to negotiate the renewal of the contract between Cedric and Sporting. But nothing is agreed.

“All scenarios are possible [in January].” © 2017 Frontier Theme
