Good news for the English clubs who were interested in signing Chris Willock from Benfica back in the January transfer window.
According to newspaper A Bola today, after rejecting a few offers for a loan in the winter, the Eagles are now interested in selling the winger.
The outlet says that West Bromwich Albion, Hull City, Queens Park Rangers, Ipswich Town and Norwich City were all keen on the player back in January.
Now they don’t make it clear who will be back for Willock, as they only say there are ‘several Championship clubs’ interested in him. That should rule out Norwich City and Ipswich Town.
Signed by Benfica in 2017 on a free transfer when his contract with Arsenal expired, Willock has never managed to play for the Eagles’ first team.
This season, he has 11 goals and six assists in 33 appearances for the reserve squad, which plays in the Portuguese second division.
Certainly something for West Brom, Hull and QPR to consider. A loan with a purchase option seems a likely route.
