Sporting Lisbon is looking at Beira-Mar’s Left-Back Joãozinho as a possible replacement for Emiliano Insúa, according to Portuguese media. The 23-year-old is likely to join the club on loan with an option for a permanent deal at the end of this campaign.

Argentine Insúa has reportedly agreed on personal terms with Brazilian club Grémio but Sporting’s President Godinho Lopes has yet to agree on a final transfer price. While former Croatian international Danijel Pranjić is expected to join Celta de Vigo on loan. The move would leave Sporting’s new manager Jesualdo Ferreira without a proven left-back.

Joãozinho was signed from II Divisão club Mafra last year and is under contract until 2015. He has a transfer clause of 2 Million Euros. The Lisbon-born Joãozinho is known for his skill on the ball, good offensive instincts and even has a dangerous shot from the back.
