Lucho to leave Porto

Lucho to leave Porto

Football Transfer Centre

Porto midfielder Lucho Gonzalez has admitted for the first time that he is likely to make an exit from Portugal this summer. A host of clubs are queueing up to land the talented centre mid.

Aston Villa, Fiorentina, Arsenal, Liverpool and AS Roma are all among the clubs showing an interest in Lucho.

"Personally, I think that this is the right moment to look for another challenge," he told O JOGO. "The players end a cycle in each club and I feel I have given many things to FC Porto, just like the club to me, and this is the right moment to take a decision that is good for everyone."

"The board wants me to stay but I have already expressed my intention to them."
