Friday, 6 March 2009

Arsene Wenger is the front runner to sign Sporting Lisbon midfielder Miguel Veloso according to sources close to the player. Veloso has been tracked by Manchester United and Chelsea in the last five years, but Wenger is leading the chase for the player.

Reports claim that Wenger has registered an official interest in Veloso and has contacted Sporting Lisbon about his availability. Sources close to the player claim the Portuguese sensation is one of several targets on Arsene Wenger's summer transfer list.

Veloso's father Antonio revealed only yesterday that his son is working on a package with Sporting to let him leave in the Summer. He said:

"I guarantee that he will continue until at least the end of the season and then we will see what is going to happen.

"We will speak with the club to resolve everything about his future so that he doesn't leave the club on bad terms."
