Sporting CP might have been eliminated in the quarterfinals of the UEFA Europa League, but few of their players certainly impressed with their performances. And one of them was their playmaker Bruno Fernandes.

The talented midfield maestro is enjoying the best season of his career at the Jose Alvalade Stadium, and he has transitioned into one of the top transfer commodities heading into the upcoming summer. And according to reports from local outlets such as A Bola and Record, there are high chances that Fernandes will leave Sporting in the coming months.

The aforementioned reports have indicated that both Juventus and Atletico Madrid are keen to make a move for the attacking midfielder, who returned to Portugal last summer after spending the past six years in Italy. Looking back, that was the best decision he could have made.

Juventus and Atletico are not the only teams that are interested in the x-year-old playmaker, though. It is believed that Liverpool and Tottenham are also keen on him, but right now the Italian and Spanish giants are leading the way and would be considered favourites to sign the former Udinese player, who has a €100 million release clause in his contract.

Fernandes has flourished at Estadio Jose Alvalade, producing 14 goals and 20 assists this season.
