Real Madrid's Jese Rodriguez is reportedly ready to turn down Arsenal in favour of a move to Benfica.

Real Madrid youngster Jese Rodriguez is reportedly prepared to turn down a move to Arsenal in the summer.

Instead, the 19-year-old is believed to be keen on joining Portuguese side Benfica, according to talkSPORT.

Los Blancos are said to be eager for Rodriquez to stay at the Bernabeu, having given him his debut earlier this season.

However, the attacker's contract expires in the summer and so far an agreement over fresh terms has yet to be reached.
