Benfica have reportedly slapped a whopping £65m price tag on youngster Goncalo Guedes to fend off interest from Arsenal.

The Gunners have been scouting the player for some time, but the Portuguese club's president Luis Filipe Vieira is determined to keep him, according to talkSPORT.

Guedes, who made his Benfica debut last weekend, has also attracted interest from German side Borussia Dortmund and Italian giants AC Milan.

Vieira is said to be prepared to offer the 17-year-old a lucrative contract lasting until June 2019 to ward off his potential suitors.
