Arsenal have a second bid for Sporting Lisbon starlet Joelson Fernandes rejected by the Portuguese outfit, according to a report.

Arsenal have reportedly had a second bid for Sporting Lisbon starlet Joelson Fernandes rejected by the Portuguese outfit.

The 17-year-old made his Liga NOS debut following the league's restart in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, and Joelson also notched up five goals and two assists in the national Under-23 League last term.

The teenager's performances have supposedly attracted the interest of Arsenal, but according to A Bola, the Gunners are still falling short of Sporting's asking price.

The report claims that Sporting are not budging on the winger's €45m (£40.6m) release clause, and Arsenal originally saw their initial bid of €20m (£18.0m) swiftly rejected.

Now, the Gunners are understood to have come back with an improved offer, but Mikel Arteta's side have been rebuffed once again by Sporting - although Arsenal would be willing to trigger Joelson's release clause if the winger was considering offers from elsewhere.

Borussia Dortmund and Juventus are also believed to be keeping a close eye on developments.
