Chris Willock is set to leave Arsenal for Benfica, reports claim.

The 19-year-old England youth is out of contract at the Emirates this month, and a move away is in the pipeline after the forward rejected a new Arsenal deal.

According to the Mirror, Willock is close to agreeing a long-term deal with the Portuguese giants.

The Londoner has travelled to Benfica to discuss terms and could even line up against Arsenal in the Emirates Cup next month.

Willock has been one of those Arsenal youngsters thought to be the future of the club with his exciting skillset and displays at the youth ranks, so it’s somewhat of a shock that the club are allowing him to join Benfica.

I hope this move does not come back and bite us from behind.
