Arsenal and Manchester City have entered the fray to snap up Sporting Lisbon's Zezinho, who has been dubbed the 'new Cristiano Ronaldo', according to talkSPORT.

The 18-year old is highly sought after, though, and the Premier League duo face a battle with AC Milan and Inter, who have been tracking the youngster for a long time.

Guinea-Bissau born Zezinho would not need a work permit having been recently granted a Portuguese passport.

The tricky winger is currently featuring only for Sporting Lisbon's youth team, but is tied down to a professional contract until 2012.

This would not deter potential suitors, however, yet they may baulk at the £17 million Sporting are said to be asking for.
