Joelson could follow in Ronaldo’s footsteps in leaving Sporting for the Premier League, like the Portuguese superstar did when he joined Manchester United in 2003.

Arsenal directors are now attempting to lure Joelson to English football, having travelled to Portugal early this week.

Portuguese newspaper A Bola say the Gunners chiefs are expected in Lisbon to negotiate with Sporting, accompanied by Joorabchian.

The agent has a very good relationship with the Arsenal board, having helped the club sign David Luiz from Chelsea last summer.

Arsenal are said to be willing to trigger the attacker’s release clause, despite their limited transfer budget.

Sporting would have their hands tied should Arsenal meet the £40m fee.

Barcelona and Juventus are tracking Joelson too, so Mikel Arteta’s side are moving quickly following the completion of the 2019/20 Premier League season.

Arsenal could still earn themselves Europa League football next term and some extra funds too if they beat Chelsea in the FA Cup final on Saturday (5.30pm).

Joelson has a very bright future ahead of him although he has very limited first-team experience.

The teenager played just 63 minutes for Sporting’s senior side this season, but some of Europe’s top clubs clearly believe he is worth investing in.
