According to The Sunday Mirror (print edition, page 78, July 19, 2020), Arsenal are ready to include a young player in a deal to sign Joelson from Sporting Lisbon.

It has been reported that the Gunners have made contact with the 17-year-old winger’s agents after the teenager turned down a new deal at Portuguese giants Sporting and want to bring him to the Emirates Stadium in the summer transfer window.

The winger’s buyout clause is £40 million, and Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta is willing to send a young player on loan to Sporting and include cash to strike a deal with them, according to the report.

Good signing for Arsenal?

Joelson is a very talented and promising young winger, with Goal.com describing the Portuguese as a ‘teen wing wizard’ in May 2019.

The feature on the Portugal Under-17 international went on to highlight the attributes of the talented teenager, stating that although he is right-footed, he plays ‘predominantly off the left-hand side’.

The 17-year-old is lacking in experience, but there is no doubt that he can develop into a superb footballer in the coming years.

Arsenal would be a better team with Joelson in it, and under Arteta, he will improve and develop his game.
