Arsenal have endured a dull run lately and having an eyes elsewhere for another striker in the name of Tiago Tomas could prove worthy
Mikel Arteta’s side, Arsenal are considered heavily pushing in on a deal to land Sporting Lisbon‘s Tiago Tomas.
According to Sun, Edu has been in contact with Sporting Lisbon’s Hugo Viana in attempt to materialize a move for Tiago Tomas ahead of the summer transfer window.
The Portuguese footballer is considered to be the most promising in the current Sporting squad and Arsenal are looking to avoid mistakes made in the past.
Arsene Wenger missed out on a ship to cargo Cristiano Ronaldo to the Premier League with Man United swinging in to snatch the World Best Player.
Tiago Tomas penned a new 5-year deal with Sporting in 2020, ranking his release clause to over £50m.
But Arsenal are confident on the deal after realizing of The Lions willingness to accept as low as £20m for the striker after considering the financial impact of the Coronavirus.
It’s said that Edu and Arteta are both impressed by Tomas after watching Sporting Lisbon’s game against Benfica and has made it clear they do not wish to miss out on the striker.
The 18-year-old has 2 goals and one assist in 8 starts for Sporting Lisbon in the Primeira Liga, helping his side to the top of the table.
Tomas Tiago spent 6 years with the club’s academy before a staggering professional deal after proving to be one of the most talented.
