Benfica loan striker Jose Gomes to Portimonense

Benfica have loaned 20 year old striker Jose Gomes to Portimonense for the season. The once highly regarded prospect has seen many of his teammates at Seixal pass him on the clubs ranking of prospects, but he will be looking for a fresh start on a Portimonense squad with some fire power up front. A member of Portugal's Euro U17 championship squad in 2016, Gomes lead the tournament in scoring with 7 goals and was named to the team of the tournament. That performance lead to him appearing in his first game for the main squad in September of that same year, Gomes appeared in a total of 5 games for Benfica during the 2016/17 season one of which included a Champions League appearance. Since then Gomes has not made an appearance for the main squad and his playing time has diminished over the years with him starting off most of the Benfica B games as a substitute. Benfica hope that Gomes can rekindle a once promising career with a bit more regular minutes at Portimonense.
