Benfica linked with Bahia midfielder

Benfica Blog

According to reports coming from Brazil, Benfica are being linked with a summer move for 21 year old midfielder Patrick de Lucca who applies his trade with Brazilian side Bahia since arriving from Palmeiras' under 20 squad in the summer of 2020. De Lucca has an €8M price tag and any sale of the player would see funds split between three clubs, Bahia 50%, Palmeiras 30% and Portuguesa 20%.

De Lucca has appeared in 16 games for Bahia across all competitions and has scored twice while setting up another. Benfica who will be looking to shore up its midfield during the summer transfer window would do well in acquiring the talented youngster as the clubs midfield has been its achilles heal this season relying strictly on Adel Taarabt's skill to provide any attacking options. Bahia currently has defender German Conti on loan from Benfica and the club could use Conti to lower the price tag further.
