ARSENAL’s hopes of signing the ‘new Cristiano Ronaldo’ could be thwarted by…. Cristiano Ronaldo.
It has been widely reported that Arsenal are prepared to trigger the £40m release clause for Sporting Lisbon sensation Joelson Fernandes.
But, according to TSF Radio, while he is open to leaving Portugal, there is now very keen interest from Ronaldo’s Juventus too.
It remains to be seen whether or not the ‘new Ronaldo’ and the original will be a good mix, so Arsenal are by no means out of contention.
Born in Guinea Bissau, Joelson has played for Portugal at under-15, 16 and 17 levels.
