Sporting are ready to cash in on the teenage forward

Arsenal are nearing a deal to sign Sporting striker Tiago Tomas at the end of the season, reports The Sun.

The 18-year-old is believed to have a £52 million ($72m) release clause in the five-year contract he signed at the Portuguese club last summer.

However, the financial impact of the Covid-19 pandemic means Sporting are ready to consider offers as low as £20m ($28m), with Gunners technical director Edu in advanced talks with Sporting director of football Hugo Viana over a transfer.

The European champions will pay a €42.5 million (£37m/$51m) release clause to land the France international, who will sign a five-year deal.

The likes of Chelsea and Liverpool were heavily linked with a move for Upamecano, but the 22-year-old has decided to stay in the Bundesliga.

Poznan snap up Johannsson

American striker Aron Johannsson has joined Lech Poznan on a deal until the end of the year, with the option to extend until the summer of 2023.

The 30-year-old was a free agent after leaving Hammarby at the end of 2020.

Man City's Angelino to join Leipzig on permanent deal

Manchester City defender Angelino is set to complete a permanent move to RB Leipzig on a four-and-a-half year deal after the club triggered an €18 million (£16m/$21m) obligation to buy.

The Spaniard joined the Bundesliga club on a season-long loan in September with an appearance-based obligation-to-purchase clause.

Angelino had to appear in 12 matches through the season, with five of those in the second half of the campaign, and he passed that figure on Friday night when he started the Bundesliga clash against Augsburg.
