Celta Vigo make offer to Benfica for Franco Cervi

Benfica Blog
Spanish club Celta Vigo have maintained their interest in Benfica midfielder Franco Cervi after almost landing the player during the January transfer window. Club President Carlos Mourino is said to have Cervi on his transfer list once the transfer window opens in the summer. The 26 year old Argentinian has been used sparingly this season playing only 803 minutes and is open to a move away from Portugal if it means more playing time.

Cervi joined Benfica in the summer of 2016 from Rosario for €5.65M and has appeared in 171 games for Benfica across all competitions, scoring 21 goals while setting up an additional 26. Cervi has won five cups in his time at Benfica which include two league titles. Celta are said to have offered Benfica €4M for Cervi's services a figure that is well below what the club is looking for and negotiations are on going.
