Benfica Blog
Benfica ended a busy day in the transaction front as the transfer window is set to close for many of Europe's top leagues on January 31, while the Portuguese League window closes on February 2. Benfica started the day with the signing of youngster Jota to a new contract that takes him into the end of the 2023/24 season, the deal includes a raise for the 20 year old and Benfica have increased his buyout clause to €88M. 
Benfica was then linked with a few moves in the transfer market, the first is a move for Corinthians winger Pedrinho with the players agent rumoured to currently be in Lisbon discussing terms with Benfica President Luis Filipe Vieira. The second link was a move out of Benfica for winger Franco Cervi to Mexican club Tigres. Benfica was also linked again with Boavista keeper Helton Leite as the look for a veteran keeper to back up current starter Vlachodimos. Benfica ended the day announcing the loan move of midfielder Ljubomir Fejsa to Spanish side Alaves until seasons end, Fejsa last appeared in a competitive game for Benfica on October 2 when the club traveled to Russia for a Champions League encounter against Zenit. The next 72 hours should be an exciting time for Benfica fans as the club looks to finalize any late moves to strengthen the club in their push towards the second half of the season.
