Defrel turns down Benfica

Roma forward Gregoire Defrel has rejected an offer from Benfica, according to reports, but remains on the market.

Pagine Romaniste claim that the French striker has received several proposals over the last few weeks, most notably from Benfica.

His salary of €1.8m including bonuses is proving a problem during negotiations.

Defrel cost €20m to buy from Sassuolo and contributed just one goal in 20 competitive appearances for the club.

The Giallorossi are eager to move him on this summer.
