Gunners linked with another City player again

Arsenal are once again being linked with a move for Manchester City full-back João Cancelo, who is currently on loan at Barcelona.

The Gunners have had a long-standing interest in the Portuguese international, and they have also a track record in recent seasons of raiding City for players, with both Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko making the journey from the Etihad to the Emirates.

Cancelo played more than 100 games for City in all competitions, before falling out with pep Guardiola.

He was loaned to Bayern Munich for the second half of last season, winning the Bundesliga with them, and then joined Barcelona in another temporary move this campaign.

Barcelona’s financial problems mean they do not have the funds to activate an option to buy the 29 year old this summer, although they would like to extend his loan for another year.

City, though, may be keen to move him on permanently, although they may hesitate before allowing him to join a direct rival.
