Shock as young prodigy departs club

After failed contract talks with Arsenal, young prodigy, Chris Willock has joined Benfica.

The youngster’s deal ran out at the end of last month, although Arsenal did make a last ditch attempt to sign Willock to a new deal.

Once regarded as the best talent in Arsenal’s academy, Willock joined Benfica on a bosman, signing a five-year deal.

The news will come as a blow to the fans, as yet another one of Arsenal’s supposed gems fails to progress into the first-team.

Speaking of the move, Willock confirmed his desire to impress on the pitch.

“I think we have a great team and we can achieve great things in the future. I hope I can show what I can do on the field.”
