According to TribalFootball, Benfica are demanding a fee of €30million for the transfer of the 25 year old midfielder.

Weigl came through the academy at 1860 Munich before moving to Dortmund in 2015 – the same summer Tuchel became the Bundesliga club’s manager.

He was a regular presence under Tuchel, making 94 appearances in two seasons before the German was sacked in 2017.
