Benfica continue search for goalkeeper

Benfica though last week that they had acquired Juventus keeper Mattia Perin, that is until the Italian keeper arrived in Lisbon and failed a medical badly throwing the whole transfer situation into doubt. The original though was that Benfica would wait for Perin to recover from injury at Juventus and finalize the transfer in January but reports out of Portugal this week have Benfica back out in search of a goalkeeper to battle Greek International Vladchodimos for the starting role. Bruno Lage has been preaching this summer that he does not want his starters to feel comfortable and wants to have someone that is ready to take over a starting role if the starter under performs. Benfica are being linked with Liverpool keeper Simon Mignolet and Robin Olsen of Roma.
