Chelsea battle Arsenal for possible Sporting Lisbon star move
Chelsea are purportedly ready to battle Arsenal for the possible transfer of Sporting Lisbon wonderkid Joelson Fernandes.
Joelson Fernandes is viewed as an immense talent and it appears he’s attracting interests from top clubs in this current summer’s transfer window.
The Blues are currently being connected with Joelson by report, who also guarantee that Arsenal have been dealt a huge blow of seeing an offer for the 17-year-old dismissed.
Joelson Fernandes has shone and could be an extraordinary fit at either club, with Arsenal and Chelsea both appearing recently that they’re prepared to hand chances to young players.
The Gunners could also do with fortifying in attack sooner rather than later in the midst of questions over Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s future as he enters the last year of his contract at the Emirates Stadium.

Chelsea, in the mean time, are also still to truly replace Eden Hazard, so could do with working for the future as Willian and Pedro have also both left the West London club this summer.
Report make it very clear, nonetheless, that Arsenal have not yet bid enough for the 17-year-old, with Sporting requesting £40m for their star player.
