Arsenal are ready with a £13.5 Million offer for teenage sensation

Arsenal are claimed to be ready with a £13.5 Million move for Joelson Fernandes.

The 17 year-old has made his way into Sporting’s plans since the return to action, picking up four first-team appearances from the bench of late, but is yet to register a goal or assist as of yet.

This will not worry Arsenal who are ready to make their move for the youngster, who we have been linked with for a number of months, having followed his progression through the youth ranks.

Fernandes has been likened to Cristiano Ronaldo, much like many young and exciting Sporting youngsters before him, and the Gunners will be hoping a bid of £13.5 Million will persuade his club to sell, according to TVI24.

The teenage sensation has supposedly rejected a contract offer from his current club, who had hoped to extend his contract beyond 2022 when his current terms will expire, and this could well prove key to his future.

Sporting will not be keen to lose their young asset, who is expected to have a bright future, while allowing to run closer to the end of his contract will also lose their ability to return a fair price.

Arsenal could well pose as an exciting destination for Joelson, given the amount of young players who have been blooded in the first-team in recent seasons, with the likes of Joe Willock and Bukayo Saka both picking up a number of appearances during the current campaign.

He will have a number of rivals for his role however, with Saka, Gabriel Martinelli,Reiss Nelson and Eddie NKetiah all currently vying with their more experienced options for the wide roles at Arsenal.

Could Fernandes be the next big thing to come out of Portugal? Will he relish the chance to join our young and exciting squad?

    Is this our priority today?

    I guess we need to stay put on youngsters, buy them while cheap to sell higher which not our model nor policy. I will be sent on loan, let’s hope it is in a first league club he can play regular football or he will be a waist and rated a flop.

    Look at how latest flops Bennacer gone for 2M, rated 50M, wanted by Man U & City, Barca, Bayern to name a few.

    Im sure players as Niles would be doing as good or better if playing regular football elsewhere. He was ahead of bennacer at some point…

    Hope he gets to a club to do so as Nelson Willock and Martinelli who do not get enough play to devellop further to top players they are potentially.

    This kid’s agent is ridiculous, or this is just rumours, kid is wanted by top teams and best team in Europe for him to progress.; Dortmund.

    Unless we sell Auba and Laca; it is no room for our own lads. I know we love to pall up average CBs, do we need young players when cant handle ourrs properly?

    We keep young Mav on loan and extend old Luiz; how can we make that transition then?

    Seems that we doing it all bacckwards and wrong…

    why do we need to spend money on another winger when we already are well off in that position we really need to strengthen our midfield and defence
    can no one in n the management or board see that are we going to be in another situation like before when we needed outfield players and we signed a goalkeeper?
