Benfica looking at Feyenoord midfielder

Benfica Blog
Benfica look ready to continue with an overhaul of last seasons disappointing side and are currently linked with Feyenoord defensive midfielder Fredrik Aursnes. The 26 year old Norwegian only joined the Dutch club last summer but left an impression with current Benfica bench boss Roger Schmidt from his time in the Eredivisie last season.

Aursnes was a key piece of Feyenoord's run to the Europa Conference League Final during the last campaign and appeared in 47 games across all competitions, scoring once while setting up four goals. Feyenoord are rumoured to be looking for around €12M to €15M for the players services, which would be a hefty profit from the €500K they paid Molde.

The acquisition of Aursnes at that price tag would more then likely mean the departure of Julian Weigl who has already been linked with various clubs in the Bundesliga this summer.
