Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal would have to pay £60m for Manchester City full-back Joao Cancelo.
Accordingly football transfersArsenal are looking to sign Joao Cancelo from Premier League rivals Manchester City in the summer transfer window.
Holders City are keen to secure the services of Arsenal and Scotland international left-back Kieran Tierney in the summer of 2023.
Tierney himself is open to a move to City, where the Gunners are most likely to win the Premier League title this season.
Football Transfers have reported that City described Cancelo’s value as follows “terrific” by former Citizens star Paul Dickov for £60m.

Joao Cancelo – Kieran Tierney’s Manchester City-Arsenal swap deal is ideal
In our opinion, it would make sense for Arsenal and Manchester City to negotiate a swap deal between Joao Cancelo and Kieran Tierney.
The fact that City manager Pep Guardiola decided to loan Cancelo out in the middle of the season suggests that the former Barcelona boss is no longer keen on having him in his squad.
Tierney has lost his place in Arsenal’s starting line-up and the former Celtic left-back is unlikely to regain it.
If City want him and Arsenal and Tierney are willing to go through with the transfer, the two clubs should strike a deal and include Cancelo as well.
It would be the best deal for everyone involved.
