Benfica linked with Maritimo striker

Benfica Blog
The winter transfer window is officially opened and Benfica are already being linked with a move for in form Maritimo striker Rodrigo Pinho. The 29 year olds contract with the Madeira side will be over in the summer and Pinho is free now to talk to any club about a move at the end of the season. Benfica are not alone in their pursuit of Pinho and may be open to offering the Madeira club money now to secure the rights to the player with the possibility of loaning Pinho back to Maritimo until seasons end. Pinho joined Maritimo on a free transfer in the summer of 2017 after being a member of Braga for two seasons prior, during his time as a member of Braga, Pinho was loaned for half of a season to island rivals Naciona. Pinho has appeared in 110 games across all competitions since joining Maritimo and has scored 37 goals for the club with 12 of these goals coming this season alone. Any Benfica move for Pinho would likely see the departure of one of the clubs current strikers with Swiss international Seferovic the likely candidate to see his tenor at the club end over new and more recent arrivals Darwin Nunez or Luca Waldschmidt.
