Benfica will demand a fee of 40 million euros (£34m) for their coveted wide man Eduardo Salvio this summer, with the likes of Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Manchester City all reportedly interested in signing the player, says the Daily Express.

The Argentina international really caught the eye for the Portuguese giants last season, with his form on the right wing for Benfica helping the club to reach the final of the Uefa Europa League against Chelsea at the Amsterdam ArenA.

The 23-year-old was playing his first campaign in the Portuguese capital having arrived in Lisbon from Liga outfit Atletico de Madrid in what was a club-record deal worth 13.5m euros last July.

And the winger lived up to his price tag, playing in a whopping 51 matches for Benfica overall in all competitions, registering an impressive 13 goals and 10 assists in that time, including 10 goals and eight assists in his 29 league appearances for the club.

As a result, some of the Premier League’s biggest clubs have been trailing Salvio’s current situation in Lisbon during the summer transfer window with a view to bringing the skilful midfield player to the English top flight next season.

However, having now been quoted a price of £34m in order to land the Argentinian, that interest may now cool somewhat.
