Ipswich Town are said to be rivalling the likes of Norwich City and QPR to the potential signing of Benfica youngster, Chris Willock according to A Bola.
West Brom and Hull City are also said to be interested in a deal to sign the 21-year-old who has reportedly been told he can leave the club in the summer.
It had previously been reported by talkSPORT, that Leeds United were interested in signing the former Arsenal man, but Benfica were unwilling to sell him in January’s transfer window.
But given that Willock has failed to break into the first-team with the Portuguese giants, they are seemingly willing to let him depart in the near future.
Willock will feel as though he has unfinished business in England, after making just one appearance for Arsenal’s first-team back in 2016 after progressing through the youth ranks at the club.
Ipswich are likely to be in the market for a striker as they aim to fire themselves back into the Championship at the first time of asking.
They evidently see Willock as one of the players that could provide them with the attacking threat, although it remains to be seen as to who will win the race to sign him in the summer.
He’ll be a player in demand.
Willock may not have lived up to the hype that was set for him when he moved to Benfica, but he’s certainly got a point to prove in the English game.
I can see Norwich being the frontrunners to sign him, although it remains to be seen as to whether they’ll be able to offer him regular football now that they are back in the Premier League.
