Joao Cancelo is reportedly still registering on Arsenal’s recruitment radar, with another transfer raid on Manchester City being lined up.
By luring Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko away from the Etihad Stadium in 2022, the north London team became a serious contender for the Premier League crown thanks to astute hiring that summer.
During this window, Mikel Arteta’s ranks have been strengthened thanks to a lucrative deal for Kai Havertz.
Arsenal are also closing in a club-record £105 million ($133m) deal for West Ham midfielder Declan Rice, but GIVEMESPORT claims that Cancelo is another that could be targeted.
The Portuguese international had previously been linked to Arsenal, who would welcome his versatility at right or left back.
The Gunners are among the teams with interest in Jurrien Timber of Ajax, a versatile defender who can play both right and centre back.
However, they are not the only ones.
In his January loan move to Bayern Munich, Cancelo had a €70 million (£60 million/$76 million) buy option, although City are likely to accept a lower price if a formal bid is made.
