Benfica being linked with another keeper

Benfica Blog
According to reports from German magazine Kicker, Benfica is being linked with Freiburg starting keeper Alexander Schwolow. Benfica have already held talks in the past with Freiburg about central defender Robin Koch but it is unknown if the Lisbon side discussed Schwolow with the German club at the same time. The 27 year old German keeper is said to have an €8M buy out clause and has also garnered interest from Dutch side Ajax. Benfica are currently in talks with Boavista about acquiring starter Helton Leite but with interest growing in Leite's services from English clubs, Benfica may be looking at a fall back plan if the Leite deal falls through. Schwolow has been with Freiburg since joining their youth side in 2008 and has appeared in 160 career games in goal across all competitions, recording 37 clean sheets.
