Arsenal reportedly ready to make a bid for a star player valued at €40m, club want to sell to ‘highest bidder’ – as per the report…



Arsenal is prepared to submit a bid to acquire a €40m star considered ‘world-class’, as the club is looking to offload the player to the highest bidder, according to a report.


According to a report from Sport, Arsenal is prepared to make an offer for Manchester City full-back Joao Cancelo in the upcoming summer transfer window.


Despite Cancelo expressing his intention to remain at Barcelona, there is still speculation surrounding a potential move to another club next season.


Last summer, there were rumors connecting the Portuguese player with Arsenal, but he ultimately decided to join Barcelona on a loan deal for the entire season, despite taking a pay cut.


Cancelo has expressed his intention to stay with Barcelona, but there are still speculations suggesting that he might switch to another club in the upcoming season.


According to Sport, Manchester City currently values him at €40 million and would prefer to sell him to the highest bidder once the transfer window opens.


Although Arsenal has shown interest, Sport reports that negotiations have been halted due to the player’s strong desire to remain at Barcelona.


Sport states that Manchester City values Cancelo at €40 million and would prefer to sell him to the highest bidder when the transfer window opens. Although Arsenal has shown interest, negotiations have been halted due to Cancelo’s desire to stay at Barcelona.


The talented Portuguese player, highly praised by Julian Nagelsmann, is firm in his decision not to engage in talks with any other European club.


Barcelona has expressed their desire to bring him back, as conveyed by the player’s agent Jorge Mendes.


There is a possibility that the speculation surrounding Cancelo is being driven by his agent. Arsenal had shown interest in signing him last summer, but City was reluctant to strengthen a direct rival in the league.


Cancelo ended up moving to Barcelona, where he has performed well, contributing with four goals and four assists in 33 appearances.


Despite ongoing rumors linking Cancelo with Arsenal, we believe that these are influenced by his agent.


From our perspective, it seems that the opportunity to sign Cancelo has passed for Arsenal. The team currently has Ben White as the established right-back, with Takehiro Tomiyasu and Jurrien Timber as backup options.


On the left-back position, Jakub Kiwior has been in excellent form recently. Additionally, players like Oleksandr Zinchenko, Tomiyasu, and Timber (when recovered from injury) can also provide defensive cover.


Therefore, Arsenal does not require an additional full-back during the upcoming transfer window. It is improbable that they will be willing to spend nearly €40m on the Portuguese player, especially considering he will be reaching 30 years old before the season concludes.


Mendes is likely the source of the rumors surrounding Cancelo’s future. He is cognizant of Barcelona’s interest in re-acquiring the player and is attempting to highlight this fact to other European clubs via Sport.
