Reports linked the Portuguese with a move away from north London in the summer, with Fulham named as late suitors for him on deadline day. However, Cedric opted to stay at the Gunners to fight for his place in Arteta’s side. However, the 31-year-old has only made four appearances all season and football.london reported that Fulham, Aston Villa and Bayer Leverkusen were showing interest.

However, with Arsenal finding themselves top of the Premier League table and challenging Manchester City for the title, Sky Sports presenter Michael Bridge has claimed that Arteta is keen to keep Cedric at the club unless he can bring in an alternative option.
