Benfica are in extended talks with Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk about Brazilian winger Pedrinho and a deal between the two clubs could be announced as early as this week. According to the IG Sports webpage the deal could be in the range of €35M to €45M when all is said and done and would end Pedrinho's short stay at the club after arriving in the summer of 2020 from Corinthians.

Benfica acquired the 23 year old for €16M and his sale to Shakhtar will see the club to double their money on a player who was mostly used as a substitute at the club this season. Pedrinho appeared in 31 games across all competitions, playing 1,019 minutes and scoring once while setting up another two goals. Benfica are looking at a total over haul of the club this summer as they look to right the ship after a disappointing 2020/21 campagin.
