Arsenal join the race to sign Joelson Fernandes

Arsenal have been linked with a move for the Sporting Lisbon winger Joelson Fernandes.

According to Calciomercato (via Football London), Juventus, Borussia Dortmund, Barcelona and Ajax are also interested in signing the 17-year-old winger who has been compared to Cristiano Ronaldo.

Fernandes is highly rated in Portugal and it will be interesting to see if Arsenal can fend off the competition and secure his services in the coming months.

Arsenal have plenty of talented young players at their disposal and Fernandes would be another long term investment for the Gunners.

Earlier this month, the player’s agent confirmed Arsenal’s interest in the winger. Apparently, the Gunners tried to sign him this summer with a bid of around €20 million.

It will be interesting to see if Arsenal return with an improved offer when the transfer window reopens in January.

Fernandes is an immense talent and Arsenal have an impressive track record of developing young players. The likes of Martinelli, Saka have all improved considerably over the past year and the 17-year-old will be hoping to fulfil his potential with the north London club if he joins them in future.
