Arsenal are set to make a €45million bid for a winger imminently, while Real Madrid have offered them two players for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Leeds close in on two keeper deals, all in the Euro papers.
ARSENAL READY OFFER
Arsenal will make an offer today to trigger the release clause of Sporting Lisbon wonderkid Joelson Fernandes.
That’s the news coming from Portuguese outlet A Bola. That release clause is set at €45million and the Gunners are willing to pay that to get the deal done and fend off the likes of Real Madrid, Juventus and Barcelona.
A Bola report that Sporting are keen to extend Fernandes’ contract, but face a battle to keep him.
The 17-year-old winger has already been lauded as the next Cristiano Ronaldo.
He was handed his senior debut when the Primeira Liga restarted last month, and has since made two more appearances.
Earlier this month A Bola credited Arsenal with an interest in the player, whose agent Kia Joorabchian has strong ties to the Gunners.
Now though the interest has increased with an offer imminent.
