Arsenal Slams £35m offer to Benfica defender Ruben Dias’


Benfica have supposedly proposed a £35m price tag on defender Ruben Dias even as Arsenal shows interest too.

The Gunners are hoping to find a centre-back this summer to replace the retiring Per Mertesacker, & the 20-year-old is said to be among manager Arsene Wenger’s top targets.

According to Sport Witness, the Portuguese outfit are reluctant to let Dias go for less than £35m, but may hold out for an offer which triggers his £52.5m release clause should a bidding war starts.

The Gunners may have to recruit more than one central defender this summer, with Laurent Koscielny turning 33 this year & his continued struggle with constant injuries.
