Good News From The Emirates: "Want Away" Star Won't Be Leaving After The World Cup

The Premier League is on break, and now is the time for PL managers to plan for the second half of the season following the World Cup. Arsenal has been on a roll this season, having only lost once and drawn once in 14 league games.



Many Gunners fans will be hoping that they can maintain their excellent form, which has them leading the league with 37 points, five points ahead of second-placed Manchester City. Making important winter transfer decisions will be one way to keep this good run going.



One key transfer decision Arteta appears to have already made is not to release Cedric Soares. The Portuguese have struggled for game time since returning from injury and is eager to leave in search of more. However, his departure has been called into question because Arteta is unwilling to let him go.

"My information is that Arteta feels they might be a little bit light, so they might stop one of the fringe players going," said Sky Sports journalist Michael Bridge on Arsenal's winter plans.



"For example, there’s a lot of interest in Cedric, and my understanding is he wants to move on, but Arsenal won’t allow that unless they bring someone else in." Given how the fullback position appears to be parked, does Soares still have something to offer Arsenal? Right back is currently contested by Ben Whit and Tomiyasu, while left back is contested by Zinchenko and Tierney.
