De Portugal defender Gonçalo Inácio

With a string of strong performances over the last eighteen months. Inácio has grown into one of Sporting’s most sought-after players.
The major European clubs are keeping a close eye on him; this is especially true in the Premier League, where he has been repeatedly linked to multiple teams.

They have been keeping an eye on Inácio since the previous season. And are setting themselves up to be able to proceed in the upcoming weeks with a firm proposal.

Sporting appears to be aware of this and preparing for life without its star player. They considering a transfer for Otávio, a central defender from Famalicão, to take his place.
