What’s more, presently the report states that Arsenal are set to make a £41m offer that will trigger the release clause in his contract, with the offer ‘approaching’.
Notwithstanding enthusiasm from Juventus and Barcelona, the Gunners have ‘indicated the best enthusiasm’ with the Premier League side on ‘the verge of progressing with a proposition’.
Kia Joorabchian is Joelson Fernandes’s agent and has a ‘favored relationship’ with Arsenal that could enable any deals to run easily, while the ‘procedure is by and large firmly observed’ by the winger’s dad.
The report finishes by guaranteeing that ‘the following days will be unequivocal’ for a potential move.
