Arsenal open talks with Benfica for Grimaldo

Arsenal have opened talks with Benfica for left-back Alejandro Grimaldo.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta is keen for a left-back to deputise for Kieran Tierney with Nuno Tavares guilty of inconsistent performances following his arrival last year.

Record says have made an enquiry to Benfica over the availability of Grimaldo.

It has been claimed that, along with contacting the Primeira Liga side, they have also been in touch with the player's representatives.

And Arsenal could land the ex-Barcelona academy ace in a cut-price deal with his contract at the Estadio da Luz to expire in 2023.

Benfica would reportedly be open to parting ways with Grimaldo should they receive between £6m-£7m.
