Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta could sign third Man City star after £61m transfer decision


At the Emirates, Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko have been instant successes. The pair have transformed Arsenal’s play, as well as contributed to a significant shift in the squad’s mentality.

They are multiple Premier League champions and could add to their tally this season. Pep Guardiola may be kicking himself for selling the duo to Arsenal and underestimating their impact at the Emirates.

Guardiola has never stood in the way of a player’s desire to leave the club, and it appears Cancelo has no future at the Etihad. After falling out of favor with Guardiola, the Portuguese left on loan to join Bayern in January.

Arteta will look to bolster his midfield in the summer, with Declan Rice a top target. However, full-back is another position that requires more depth.

Cancelo can play on both sides of the defense and would be comfortable adapting to Arteta’s style because he is used to it at City. Arsenal may have a difficult time convincing City to sell another player.

As a result, they may have to pay more than the odds and more than Bayern is willing to offer. The potential sale of Kierney, who has been linked with Newcastle, could open up a spot in Arteta’s squad while also bringing in significant funds to help find a replacement.

After Cancelo’s arrival at City in 2019, Arteta was only in charge for six months. However, the Spaniard has the ability to have an immediate impact on players, and an exploratory phone call to the 28-year-old could be something that piques his interest.
