Aron Gunnarsson has been linked with move to Al Arabi after former Iceland coach Heimar Hallgrimsson took over at the Qatari club.
The Cardiff City skipper signed a new one-year contract with the Bluebirds in July, but he could still leave the club on a free transfer at the end of the current campaign.
Reports in Qatar have suggested Gunnarsson’s connection to Hallgrimsson, who led Iceland to the Euro 2016 quarter-finals and their first-ever World Cup Finals appearance in Russia this year, makes him a potential candidate to join Al Arabi.

Marseille star Dimitri Payet is another high profile name that has been linked to the club, who signed Gabriel Batistuta in 2003.
Hallgrimson, the 51-year-old former dentist, stressed that he was attracted to the long-term project offered by the club – adding that he was sure he would be fully supported in the transfer market.
He said: “We will do whatever it takes, we will evaluate the squad for ourselves and we will sit down with the board, this year will be a development year and after four or five months we will have an idea next season.” “If in January we say we will need changes I am confident that we will get the support of the president.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
