Cedric has made five Premier League appearances for Arsenal this season

Atletico are proposing a loan deal with the option of a permanent move at the end of the season.

It is understood the LaLiga champions are scouring the Premier League to find Trippier’s replacement, following his success in Spain.

The England defender, 31, was among the Spanish top-flight’s best performers during the 2020/21 campaign.

Trippier’s move to Newcastle has left Atletico in need of a new right-back

Atletico boss Simeone admitted he was reluctant to see Trippier go earlier this week.

Cedric has become surplus to requirements at Arsenal following the arrivals of full-backs Nuno Tavares and Takehiro Tomiyasu last summer.

With Calum Chambers and Sead Kolasinac also in their ranks as cover for Kieran Tierney and co., the Gunners could be open to letting Cedric leave this winter.
