Benfica hit the winter transfer window running, locking up a pair of northern European youngsters in Casper Tengstedt and Andreas Schjelderup in the past 36 hours. Benfica first acquired 22 year old striker Tengstedt from Rosenborg for €7M, signing the Dane to a contract until the summer of 2028 with a €100M buy out clause.

Then Benfica made their move for the Danish's leagues leading scorer and 18 year old Norwegian winger Andreas Schjelderup from Nordsjaelland in which they paid €9M with a potential additional €5M in add ons. Schjelderup also signed a contract with the club until the summer of 2028, with a €100M buy out clause.

Benfica's moves are to add depth to a squad still competing for three trophies this year, the club will turn their attention to their midfield now before the window closes at the end of month across the majority of Europe.
