Arsenal handed boost in race for transfer target

Arsenal have been handed some good news on the transfer front as competition for a target is limited.

The target in question is Manchester City full-back, Joao Cancelo.

A summer move for the Portuguese has been touted, with both Arsenal and FC Barcelona linked in recent months.

Arsenal’s interest seems to have died down in recent weeks but the Gunners may have a chance to seal a deal for the full-back in the coming weeks thanks to Barcelona’s financial issues.

Speaking about Cancelo on Sunday, Fabrizio Romano claimed Barcelona cannot afford him at the moment, but he still expects the player to leave Man City this summer:

“Barcelona love Cancelo, this hasn’t changed. At the moment they can’t move for this kind of deal, so nothing is immediate and it could take time,” Romano said.

“That’s why other clubs still have chances to enter the race but this hasn’t happened as of now. I still expect Cancelo to leave City this summer.”
