Benfica have beaten Arsenal and Manchester City in the race to sign Helsingborg winger Robert Mirosavic.
The Sweden Under-17 skipper has moved to the The Estádio da Luz on a three-year-deal following 12 months of speculation, in which he has travelled the world on trial with several European clubs.
Arsenal were first to take a look at the quicksilver winger, with Arsene Wenger suitably impressed, but as the club mulled over a contract offer, Mirosavic went on trial at clubs in Germany and Holland, before returning to England for run-outs at Manchester City and more recently Sunderland.
The Black Cats were unimpressed with the 17-year-old, but Arsenal and City remained keen, and had asked if the player wanted to train with them again ahead of the new season.
However, Mirosavic has now signed with Benfica, in a deal that will net Helsingborg around £100,000.
