The 16-year-old forward has trained with the first-team squad at Sporting Clube de Portugal for the second day in a row ahead of their Portuguese Cup semi-final match against Braga.

Joelson Fernandes is one of the brightest prospects to come from Sporting's academy and is under contract until 2022 with a €45m buyout clause.

The youngster is already capped at U16 level by Portugal where he predominantly plays as a left winger but is also comfortable just behind the main striker.

This interest could materialise into a move as Sporting are keen on La Masia star Abel Ruiz. Barça would look to include Fernandes in any deal.
