Benfica are hoping to secure the services of young Real Madrid striker Roberto Soldado, according to reports in Portugal.
Soldado's agent Alberto Toldra told Portuguese newspaper A Bola that Benfica were willing to pay a fee of 12million euros for the 22-year-old.
The highly-rated Soldado, who has also been linked with West Ham and Spurs, only recently signed a new long-term contract with the Spanish champions to keep him at the Bernabeu until 2012.
A Bola has also reported that Benfica have signed Brazilian defender Edcarlos Conceicao Santos for 1.5million euros on a four-year deal from Sao Paulo, while forward Manu has joined AEK Athens on loan.
