Joao Cancelo, a full-back for Manchester City, is apparently on the verge of joining Barcelona, thus Arsenal’s dreams of luring him to the Emirates Stadium during the summer transfer window appear to be dashed.
Joao Cancelo, who has been connected to Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal, is reportedly the subject of a document exchange between Manchester City and Barcelona, according to Fabrizio Romano, who posted the news on Twitter.
Barcelona signs Arsenal target Joao Cancelo
The full-back representing Portugal internationally, according to the Italian journalist, will leave for Barcelona tonight.
The fullback, 29, will make a loan move to La Liga winners Barcelona after spending the second part of the season at Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich from City.
Arsenal won’t be able to sign Cancelo this summer as a result of this.
Only on August 18 did 90min announce Arsenal’s interest in Cancelo.
According to the report, the full-back and Arsenal were in negotiations for a transfer to the Emirates Stadium.
According to the report, the Gunners and Cancelo’s representatives were in conversation.
Because Jurrien Timber, who only joined the North London club this summer, has a long-term injury, 90min said that Arsenal was/is looking to buy a full-back.
And it appears that Arsenal will continue its quest for a full-back.
One of the top full-backs in the game, Cancelo’s versatility on the field is a huge asset.
The fact that Arsenal wanted to sign the Portuguese star does not surprise us in the least.
With Cancelo in the team, Barcelona will improve.
98 of the full-back’s career appearances have been in the Premier League.
In those games, Cancelo has five goals, 11 assists, and 41 clean sheets to his credit.
Watching which full-back Arsenal will now target will be interesting.
The Gunners are running out of time.
