Southampton shocked by Arsenal signing Cedric Soares


Saints chiefs expected Soares, whose contract expires at the end of the season, to be seeking a move away from the club but were expecting his representatives to be in talks with lower league clubs or teams abroad and to lose him on a free when his current deal ended.

Soares is expected to be out for at least the next couple of weeks but were still willing to pay Southampton £5million for his services. Southampton’s board could hardly believe their luck.

While they saw no logic in Arsenal’s pursuit aside from certain relationships between the Gunners and Soares’ representatives, according to The Athletic, Arsenal bosses believe they will get exactly what they wanted from the transfer market once Soares returns to full fitness.
