Benfica midfielder Florentino Luis ‘very close’ to Monaco

Florentino Luis could finally be on his way out of Benfica with Monaco close to signing him, A BOLA reports.

The talented 21-year-old midfielder has attracted great interest this summer, but Benfica have been slow to accept any offers.

AC Milan, Fulham and Monaco all had initial offers knocked back by the Lisbon club. Southampton have also shown interest in recent days.

But a season-long loan move to Monaco is ‘very close’ to being finalised, according to A BOLA.

Monaco will pay a €2m loan fee for Florentino, but will not have an option to buy.

At the end of the season, Florentino will either return to Benfica or be sold.

While in France, Florentino will have a higher salary than what he earns at Benfica, all of which will be paid by Monaco.

Florentino has made 69 first-team appearances for Benfica after coming through their academy system.
