According to Record, Besiktas is making progress in talks to sign Cedric Soares. Meanwhile, discussions have intensified in recent days. Described as a “fantastic” player by Arsenal legend Gilberto Silva, Cedric’s potential departure may not be met with much disappointment from the Gunners fanbase.
