Soares heading for Turkey?

Arsenal full-back Cedric Soares is closing in on a  move to Turkey and Beşiktaş.

The 32 year old Portuguese international has fallen down the pecking order at the Emirates, and, with less than six months remaining on his current deal, is surplus to requirements at the Emirates.

The structure of any move is still being finalised, but could take the form of an initial loan move before it becomes permanent in the summer.

That would be similar that brought Soares to the Emirates in the first place, when he joined the club from Southampton four years ago.

He spent part of last season on loan at Fulham, but struggled for game time there as well.

With Takehiro Tomiyasu away at the Asian Cup with Japan, and Jurrien Timber still recovering from the ACL injury he suffered in the first Premier League game of the season, Soares departure means that Arsenal might be stretched in the right-back area should anything happen to Ben White.
