Arsenal due cash windfall from Bennacer sale

Arsenal are due a cash windfall from Empoli midfielder Ismael Bennacer's pending move to AC Milan.

The Sun says the Gunners are set to receive an unlikely transfer budget boost when their former midfielder Bennacer seals a £14million switch to AC Milan.

Gunners boss Unai Emery was handed just £40m to improve his squad after failing to qualify for the Champions League.

Milan are nearing the signing of Bennacer, who spent two years in North London before moving to Italian side Empoli.

As part of that deal, Arsenal inserted both a buy-back option as well as a reported 30 per cent sell-on clause for any future transfer.

Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio has now revealed Empoli are close to selling Bennacer to their league rivals for £14m plus add-ons.
