Benfica have reportedly joined Marseille in the race to sign Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi.
The 22-year-old fell out of favour at Arsenal towards the end of the 2019-20 for disciplinary reasons.
Guendouzi spent last season on loan with Hertha Berlin and is widely expected to move on permanently this summer.
The Portuguese outfit are rebuilding their midfield ahead of next season and are said to be eyeing up Guendouzi as a marquee signing.
Roma midfielder Steven N'Zonzi, who spent last season on loan with Rennes, is also rumoured to be on Benfica's radar.
