The Premier League giants Arsenal had scouts at Estadio da Luz the previous week, the Portuguese press reports.
According to a Portuguese sports newspaper Record, Arsenal had officials closely watching Benfica’s Europa League clash versus Turkish top flight Super Lig title chasers Galatasaray, which ended with a goalless draw.
The Gunners’ target isn’t revealed by the outlet, and as the London club are one of the sides who often have delegations watching games in Portugal, it’s sometimes difficult to guess who their target is this time.
But the latest reports make it clear that one Aguias player of interest to Arsenal is Alex Grimaldo. Not only in stories emerging from the Portuguese press, but by the Spanish press as well.
