The young Argentine talent, Ezequiel Fernández, has been in the spotlight lately thanks to his outstanding performance in the ranks of Boca Juniors. At only 21 years old, Fernández has attracted the attention of renowned European clubs, and one of the teams that has entered the fray for his signature is Benfica, willing to compete for his services.
Benfica wants to sign a Boca Juniors pearl
Benfica’s interest is clear: they want to secure Ezequiel Fernández, and the ideal would be to do so in the next winter market. However, they are willing to wait until summer if conditions are not conducive to an immediate move. The Portuguese club’s ambition is undeniable, and they are willing to spend a significant amount to convince both the player and Boca Juniors.
Benfica does not have an easy road ahead, as Fernández’s profile has also attracted the attention of other important clubs, including La Liga side Sevilla. It is rumored that Sevilla has already started preliminary talks regarding the possible incorporation of Fernández into their ranks. Although, for the moment, Benfica seems to be one step ahead in the race to sign him, the pressure from Sevilla could play an important role in the development of this story, as reported by Todo Fichajes.
As for the value of the operation, it is estimated that it could range between 6 and 8 million euros. This figure is what Benfica are planning to offer, although Sevilla could try to increase it to ensure that Fernández joins their ranks. With negotiations still in their early stages, we will have to wait until January for more concrete details regarding the fate of Ezequiel Fernández and which of these European clubs will finally snap up his promising talent.
