Cedric has been a bit part player at Arsenal this season and has been heavily linked with a move away from the Gunners this month.


Fulham have been in talks to sign the defender for weeks but with hours left in the window, an agreement is still not in place.



The Cottagers are still pursuing a deal to sign the Portuguese on deadline day with Marco Silva pushing for the player.


But it has been claimed that Fulham are not alone in the race to sign Cedric in the final hours of the transfer window.



An unnamed Premier League club and another outfit from Spain are also interested in Cedric today.


The race is on but Fulham are hopeful that they have put in enough legwork to get the deal over the line.



Cedric is also believed to be keen to stay in London and is open to working under Silva at Fulham.
