Benfica need one more center back to join club

Benfica Blog
The season is ready to get underway and Benfica could use one more center back for the season, especially if they will continue to play in a three center back system each and every game. The starting three of Nicolas Otamendi, Jan Vertonghen and Lucas Verissimo are currently backed up by Morato and Ferro, two players that Jorge Jesus is not super excited to use regularly if one of the starting three is injured.

The likely hood of injury is always present and with Otamendi and Vertonghen pushing close to their mid thirties, Benfica could use a center back with a little experience to shore up the fourth center back position. Benfica should look within the league to keep the cost low and a name that comes to mind is Moreirense's captain Lazar Rosic. 

The Serbian has been in Portugal since the summer of 2016, spending time at Braga and Nacional before joining Moreirense. Rosic has appeared in 117 games since arriving in Portugal across all competitions, scoring 5 goals while setting up a pair. Rosic has the league experience to step in if one of the starting three were to go down with injury and would end up being a good insurance policy for the season.
