Sporting Lisbon wing-back Nuno Mendes is reportedly a summer transfer target for Arsenal, having already been linked with Manchester United and Liverpool.

Arsenal are reportedly the latest Premier League club to register an interest in Sporting Lisbon youngster Nuno Mendes.

The recently-turned 18-year-old has already been linked with Manchester United and Liverpool after making nine top-flight appearances for Sporting last season.

Predominantly used as a left wing-back, Mendes is said to have also caught the eye of AC Milan, who are rumoured to have had a £13.5m bid rejected earlier this summer.

Portuguese outlet O Jogo reports that Arsenal are now ready to make an approach for the Sporting academy player, but they may have to pay around £40m for his services.

Mendes recently signed a five-year deal at the Estadio Jose Alvalade and the Primeira Liga outfit are under no pressure to sell.
