Peres talks with Benfica

Roma have reportedly sent emissaries to negotiate for a Bruno Peres sale to Benfica, as they are favourites ahead of Galatasaray.

According to Il Messaggero and A Bola, the Giallorossi have one of their representatives in Lisbon this weekend to discuss the terms.

Peres has struggled for playing time and made too many defensive errors in Coach Eusebio Di Francesco’s 4-3-3 formation.

Benfica are the favourites and hope to sign him on loan with option to buy at the end of the season for €10m.

Other alternatives for Peres are Galatasaray, Watford and Brighton.
