Leading scouts from top European clubs were at Estádio José Alvalade on Sunday night to witness the meeting between Sporting and CD Feirense.
Representatives from Manchester United and Arsenal were at the stadium presumably to watch Nigeria international Oghenekaro Etebo and the outstanding players in both teams. Benfica, Genoa, Cologne, Eibar, Yokohama Marinos and Armenia Bielefeld scouts also watched from the stands, according to supersporting.net.
On his ninth appearance in the Portuguese Primeira Liga this season, Etebo was in action for 90 minutes.
CD Feirense president Kunle Soname and Etebo’s intermediary Eddy Ogbemudia earlier said they have not been officially approached by Arsenal and Leicester City over a transfer.
