Benfica's Taarabt turning into hot commodity

Benfica midfielder Adel Taarabt has turned into a hot commodity across Europe attracting the interest of various clubs across the continent. Taarabt has been linked with Italian sides Sampdoria and Fiorentina along with Russian club Zenit and Greek side Olympiakos for a switch this upcoming season. Taarabt who is signed with Benfica until the summer of 2022, has been used regularly by Jorge Jesus during this preseason and any move for the 31 year old Moroccan would only occur if Benfica were to acquire another midfielder during the transfer window.
Taarabt joined Benfica in the summer of 2015 but only started making regular appearances with the club towards the end of the 2018/19 season after Bruno Lage took over the club as its manager. Taarabt since then has appeared in 45 games for Benfica across all competitions, scoring once while adding three helpers. Benfica would be looking to add between €10M-€15M to depart with Taarabt services from any interested party.
