Benfica's young talent has signed a pre-contract with a PL team.

Jeremy Sarmiento

, who had struggled to find his spot in


starting lineup, has signed a pre-contract with a Premier League club, according to his father.

"We’ve signed a pre-contract with a Premier League team,”

Leonel Sarmiento told



The England Under-17 international’s father thinks that Benfica’s boss Jorge Jesus is not paying attention to the young talents in the club, which can be the reason Sarmiento has chosen to leave the club.

“As is well known, there are many players at Benfica, the coach Jorge Jesus does not give opportunities to youngsters in training and it is better to leave,"

he said


“A Premier League team wanted Jeremy in the winter transfer window, paying the amounts related to the deal and offering Benfica 20 per cent of a future transfer. I don’t know what happened, but Benfica didn’t accept it.

“They said Jeremy would have to stay until June. We will be out of play for about a year.

“We have to wait until June. When it’s over, we’re going to England.”

Before coming to Benfica in 2018, the winger played for Charlton, and big clubs started monitoring his performance since then, and now at the age of 18, he has many things to achieve, so we have to wait and see what will happen to him in the future.
