Benfica in the market for another striker

Benfica continue their search for attacking depth and have turned their attention to Tigres striker Enner Valencia. The 29 year old Ecuadorian striker is said to be valued at €8M and spent four seasons in England between 2014 - 2017 representing West Ham and Everton. Bruno Lage knows Valencia well from his time spent in England and wants to bolster the clubs attacking options behind recent acquistion Raul de Tomas and last seasons leading goal scorer Haris Seforovic. The obstacle that could prevent Benfica from completing the move is Valencia's annual salary which is currently €2.5M annually. Benfica would need to convince Valencia to lower his salary if he were to make a move to the Portuguese club.
