Gifted Gunner star Chris Willock is set to complete a move to Benfica B-side in order to continue his development having failed to break into Arsene Wenger’s XI.
Willock, 19, is out of contract at the Emirates next month. The England Under-19 international travelled to Portugal to discuss terms over the free transfer.
And the young winger is seemingly concerned about his chances of making the first-team on a regular basis.
The Daily Mirror says the London teenager is actually close to agreeing a long-term deal with the Primeira Liga champions.
Willock’s only two appearances as a substitute for the Gunners came in last season’s EFL Cup.
And Willcock, who has been with the north London club since 2003, could get his chance to prove his worth against Arsenal in the Emirates Cup next month.
