North London outfit Arsenal are reported to have identified Joelson Fernandes as a transfer target for the summer transfer window.

Portuguese outlet, TVI 24 reports that the Gunners are a step closer to clinching a deal for Joelson Fernandes as they have made their interest known to Sporting Lisbon and have tabled the sum of £13.6 million bid for his signature.

Sporting Lisbon have been making efforts to convince the 17-year-old to extend his deal at the club but that seems not to be positive and the North London outfit are keen to take advantage of the situation to ensure the land the player.

Should Sporting Lisbon fail to extend the contract for Joelson Fernandes, they will be forced to accept Arsenal’s bid for the teenager.

Joelson Fernandes will be lured by the fact that a number of youngsters are given the chance with the Arsenal first team and could excel under manager Mikel Arteta who is a big fan of youth players.

Should Arsenal land Joelson Fernandes this summer, he will join Gabriel Martinelli, Bukayo Saka, and Joe Willock as the youth players at the Emirates Stadium.

Howbeit, Mikel Arteta is hoping the Gunners board will give him massive support in the summer transfer window as he hopes to buy quality players that will help the team compete in the coming season.

Lucas Torreira

From all indications, Uruguayan midfielder Lucas Torreira will never return to the Emirates Stadium as an Arsenal player again.

Lucas Torreira is currently on a loan term at the Spanish La Liga club, Atlético Madrid after making the move in the last summer transfer window.

According to Lucas Torreira, during one of his interview after his move away from the North London, he was unhappy in England and had family issues that affected his form but that has since disappeared after he joined the Spanish La Liga outfit as he seems to have settled quickly in the team.

Moreover, the North London outfit are looking forward to cashing in from the sale of the former Sampdoria midfielder and will be glad to have it done in the interest of both parties.

However, the North London outfit have secured the signature of Ghanaian midfielder Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid which is believed to be a perfect replacement for Lucas Torreira

The 24-year-old joined the Gunners from Sampdoria in 2018 with lots of prospects but he lost his mojo and went down the pecking order under manager Mikel Arteta.

Torreira moved to Atlético on deadline day and made his debut for his new side in their 2 – 0 win over Celta Vigo at the weekend.

He revealed that he held a similar discussion with David Dein but he was told to stay at the club as they were very close and were loyal to each other.

Explaining that the decision of the club to sack David Dein was a result of the Emirates Stadium that was being built but it was a difficult reality to bear with.

Arsene Wenger insists that his leaving Arsenal would have hurt the club badly because he was highly needed at that time to help the team as he was also attracting interests from Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain.

However, the legendary French boss retired at the Emirates Stadium in 2018 to be the most successful manager in the Gunners history after a 20-year reign, winning the Premier League and the FA Cup titles.
