Monaco enter Florentino Luis race with €31.5m pitch

Monaco are the latest club to make an offer for Benfica midfielder Florentino Luis, according to Record.

The promising 21-year-old has been made available by Benfica due to an excess of midfielders in Jorge Jesus’ squad.

AC Milan have made an approach while Fulham had a €1m loan with €18m option to buy offer rejected.

Record states that Monaco have made a proposal of €1.5m for a season-long loan with a €30m option.

However, Benfica are still not satisfied and are looking at a package worth over €40m for Florentino.

With three clubs interested, the Eagles will hope for a bigger offer before the transfer window closes.

The Portugal under-20 international is under contract until 2024 and shielded by a €120m release clause.

Florentino wants more game time than he had last season and a move is probable if the situation does not change.

He made 10 appearances in the league and two in the Champions League for Benfica last season.
