Ronald Koeman wants Jerzy Dudek or Bogdan Lobont at Benfica.
Benfica coach Ronald Koeman has confirmed his interest in Jerzy Dudek and Bodgan Lobont.
The Dutchman wants to sign a new goalkeeper in January and has the two internationals in his sights.
Poland number one Dudek has been dislodged by Jose Reina at Liverpool while Romanian Lobont is not first choice at Ajax.
"It is true that one of the main problems of our team is in goal," he told RTL5.
"Lobont is one of the names that we have [in mind], but also Dudek."
There has been some talk that Liverpool will try to use Dudek, their UEFA Champions League final hero, as a makeweight in their bid to sign Simao Sabrosa.
Ajax claim they have yet to receive an offer for Lobont, who is out of favour at Amsterdam ArenA.
Benfica have been calling on 19-year-old keeper Rui Nereu due to injuries to Quim and Jose Moreira.
