Willock has been with the Gunners since 2003 but the highly-rated 19-year-old forward is yet to make a first-team appearance for Arsene Wenger in the Premier League.

The England Under-19 international is out of contract at the end of June which has seen him be linked with a move away from the Emirates ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.

Record claim Willock is now closing in on a switch to Primeira Liga outfit Benfica where the teenager will be hoping for more regular game-time.
