The Portugal international has been one of the most sought-after midfielders for the past two seasons, attracting interest from a number of top European clubs.
As per a report in The Sun last month, Arsenal were said to have lodged a £28.5 million offer for his services while Manchester United have been monitoring his situation for some time, according to The Daily Mail.
His recent performances in the Euro U21 Championships prove that he’s ready for a big move, and with Arsenal’s need for added midfield competition, a switch to North London would make sense.
While a number of differing figures have been spurted out by the media in recent months, PSG’s offer is said to be roughly £25 million upfront with another £7 million in variables.
Should he make a move to the Ligue 1 champions, his sale would be a record for Sporting, surpassing the amount paid by Manchester United for winger Nani in 2007.
