Sporting's Youngster Could be Main Target Again

Juventus recently had pulling out of the race for Sporting's Miguel Veloso from Portugal. Arsenal boss Wenger may be keen to bring in the defensive midfielder to the Emirates Stadium.

The talented anchorman has been linked with a plenty of clubs. Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, Everton, AC Milan, and Juventus have all shown interest in the player in the past.

But with Arsenal requiring a replacement for the money-hunter Flamini, North London could be his future destination.At the end of the 2007-08 season, the player himself told Portuguese reporters: “I do not know if this will bemy last game for Sporting. Let's see what the future will hold.”

A release clause has been inserted in Veloso’s contract, ergo the club will be forced to release their holding midfielder in the event they receive a fee in excess of £23.7million.

For Arsenal players not in action over the summer, pre-season training will begin tomorrow where Wenger will be able to assess his squad. The Gunners have been linked withAmaury Bischoff, Roque Santa Cruz, and Klaas Jan Huntelaar. An on/off deal for Samir Nasri is still up in the air.

  2. as the previous comment is written in swahili, i feel obliged to add a note in english. this player is worth maybe 10 mil quid, good mobility, but technically he's iffy and a bit slight for epl, not much of a finisher not a threat to score much, and too damn young to be considered world class talent, did not feature for portugal at euros, this kid is just another kid, nuff said.
