Benfica to return to Almeria for another striker

Benfica Blog
Benfica look to try their luck again this summer with a striker currently at Spanish second division side Almeria and hope to strike gold as they did in the summer of 2020 when they acquired Darwin Nunez from the same club. With Nunez set to depart for greener pastures this summer and Benfica ready to reap a windfall of cash for the sale of the 22 year old, the club is looking to acquire a replacement for the Uruguayan international.

According to reports coming from Italy, Benfica are in talks already with Almeria for the clubs current number one striker Umar Sadiq. The 25 year old was Nunez's replacement at the Spanish side and has scored 38 goals across all competitions since joining the club over the past two seasons. Almeria is also set to reap a windfall from Benfica's sale of Darwin Nunez based on an add on clause that will see them receive 20% of any future sale that Benfica make on the player. This itself should see the clubs want to work together once more.
