Fulham submit formal offer for Benfica’s Florentino Luis

Fulham have submitted an official offer to sign Benfica midfielder Florentino Luis on loan with an obligation to buy.

Scott Parker is looking to improve his Fulham squad after they won promotion back to the Premier League and has identified the 21-year-old as a target.

Record reports that Fulham want Florentino on an initial one-year loan with a mandatory purchase at the end of it.

This comes days after the same source reported that AC Milan are looking into a similar deal.

Milan’s offer would see them pay €3m, but for a two-season loan, then €30m to buy him permanently.

Fulham’s offer is reportedly around €1.5m as a loan fee, then €25m to purchase Florentino outright.

Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds United are another side to have asked for information on the talented midfielder.

Florentino was an important part of Benfica’s side in the 2018-19 season, but an injury, then the arrival of Julian Weigl saw him drop down the pecking order.
