Arsenal close to signing €45m Sporting starlet Joelson

Arsenal are closing in on a deal for Sporting CP wonderkid Joelson Fernandes, according to A BOLA.

The 17-year-old is one of Portugal’s most exciting talents and has a release clause of €45m.

It’s reported that Arsenal have shown a willingness to pay the clause to avoid another ‘Ronaldo mistake‘.

Kia Joorabchian, Joelson’s agent, will accompany an Arsenal delegation to Lisbon with the aim of closing a deal.

Joorabchian has close relations with the English side, which will help faciliate Joelson’s move to Arsenal.

Arsenal are eager to wrap up the deal, fully aware that the likes of Juventus and Barcelona have eyes on Joelson.

Joelson spent much of the season in Sporting’s under-23 side, but made four first team appearances after the Portuguese restart.
