The media in Portugal are briefly highlighting Arsenal’s interest in Joelson Fernandes, and today’s updates by Record suggest that the Lisbon side have started new round of negotiations in bid to renew the 17-year-old’s contract.
Sporting reportedly want to fixate his release clause at €100m (from €45m), something his father Eusébio and his agent Kia Joorabchian are against.
The report by Record insists that the Portuguese is wanted by at North London with the Gunners having an offer ‘ready to be presented’ to Sporting. Alongside Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund as well as RB Leipzig pursuing his signature.
There were initial claims that Joelson is another of player Mikel Arteta is trying to bring at the Emirates which was followed by the reports that contact was initiated. And with the claims now insisting that the Gunners are preparing a bid – these claims are getting stringer with time.
