Arsenal’s search for reinforcements this summer could prove to be very costly in the market, with top-class fetching a premium price in modern football.

are likely to be looking for defensive additions this summer following another disappointing campaign, particularly with veteran captain set to hang up his boots to take a role with the academy.

Whilst you may expect to sign an experienced defender, as the club already boast the talents of Calum Chambers, and Konstantinos Mavropanos, it seems are happy to land another youngster.

Reports from Portugal cited by Sports Witness state that have been tracking Benfica defender this season and the Portuguese side are ready to sell this summer, reportedly already searching for replacements.

The 20-year-old has earned a stellar reputation following his rise for Benfica, making 19 appearances and scoring three goals this season, but would prove to be a costly addition as his club are eyeing a fee of at least €40m for his services.

Dias’ contract with Benfica includes a release-clause of €60m, which means the club’s price-tag isn’t unrealistic, but it remains to be seen whether would splash such a vast amount on the youngster.
