Benfica linked to Gent striker from Ukraine

Benfica Blog
Benfica continue to shop around as they look to strengthen their line up for the 2021/22 season and reports from Belgian site Voetbal24 have the club linked to Gent striker Roman Yaremchuk. Yaremchuk joined Gent in the summer of 2017 from Dynamo Kiev for a mere €2M and has since appeared in 152 games across all competitions for the club, scoring 61 goals. 

Voetbal24 reports that Yaremchuk has given Gent the go ahead to make a move this summer and although AC Milan and West Ham have also been linked with the striker, Yaremchuk is said to prefer a move to Benfica. The only obstacle in place is Gent's price tag on Yaremchuk which is set at €25M but Benfica are currently working on negotiating a lower fee.

The 25 year old was recently a member of Ukraine's 2020 Euro squad, scoring twice in his nations quarter-final run and any move for Yaremchuk would certainly see Benfica move out a striker or two from its current line up with Haris Seferovic and Carlos Vinicius the two most likely to depart the club with his arrival.
