Gino Peruzzi A Target for Benfica


Portugal champions Benfica have set their sights on the Boca Juniors defender Gino Peruzzi.

The Eagles have identified the 25-year-old as the ideal solution at right-back and a replacement for Barcelona loanee Douglas Pereira who has thus far underperformed in Portugal.

Peruzzi is heading into the final year of his contract with Boca Juniors and could be available on a cut-price deal in excess of €2.5 million this winter.

Apart from being a strong defender, Boca Juniors man has a good eye for goal and is a major threat in attack.
