Benfica will turn to Lucas Verissimo if Semedo fails

Benfica Blog
Benfica are already lining up a back up plan if Olympiakos continue to play hard ball for the acquisition of Portuguese international center back Ruben Semedo with reports coming in that the club will turn once again to the Brazilian league. Benfica are keen on Santos' 25 year old center back Lucas Verissimo who Jorge Jesus is familiar with from his time managing Flamengo. This is not the first time the club has been linked to the Santos player who is a regular stalwart in Santos' back four having appeared in 115 games for the club across all competitions, scoring six goals while adding a helper. Semedo is the preferred choice of the club but with the season set to get underway this upcoming weekend the club wants a center back in place sooner then later and will not hesitate turning to the Santos defender.
