FULHAM are eyeing Benfica star Florentino Luis on a season-long loan – with a £27m option to buy.

The Portuguese ace has been scouted by Scott Parker as a possible option to bolster his midfield.

The 21-year-old has also been looked at by AC Milan, along with a number of other top European clubs

The Cottagers are looking to sign another central midfielder in their fight to stay in the Premier League this season.

Florentino has made 21 appearances for Benfica and scored one goal since being promoted to their first-team.

Meanwhile, AC Milan are closing in on a move for Chelsea flop Tiemoue Bakayoko on loan.

 

A deal for the 26-year-old is stalling over an obligation to buy with the Blues demanding £27m at the end of the campaign.

Stamford Bridge chiefs wants £4.5m for a year-long loan.

But the Italian giants have only been prepared to offer £2.7m so far.

The Rossoneri also do NOT want an obligation to buy at the end of his spell, and would only pay £22.5m anyway.

Bakayoko is desperate for a return to Italy after a successful spell with AC Milan in 2018-19.

He made 31 appearances for the club, and scored one goal, before heading back to Monaco last season.

The ex-Rennes ace has had a disastrous spell at Chelsea after joining for a hefty £40m in the summer of 2017.
