Chris Willock 'leaves Arsenal for Benfica'

England youth international Chris Willock reportedly signs a five-year contract with Benfica after rejecting a new Arsenal deal.

Chris Willock has reportedly signed a five-year contract with Benfica after rejecting the chance to sign a new deal at Arsenal.

Neither Benfica nor Arsenal have confirmed the move, but the 19-year-old has been pictured in the Portuguese club's strip at their ground, suggesting that all of the official paperwork has been signed.

Willock, whose brother Matty Willock currently represents Manchester United, trained with Arsenal's first team last season, and was named on the bench for the FA Cup clash with Hull City, in addition to making two appearances in the League Cup.

The England youth international has seemingly turned down the chance to pen an extension with the Gunners, however, as he looks to make the grade with Benfica.

Forward Willock has scored twice in seven appearances for England's Under-19 team.
