Portuguese giants Benfica have lined up a swoop for Victor Nilsson Lindeloef.

The 17-year-old full-back is currently playing for Vaesteraas SK, but he is now set to move to Portugal next summer.

Benfica have agreed terms with Vaesteraas, and the player himself cannot wait for the move.

"This is like a dream. It's a chance I can not refuse." Nilsson Lindeloef told the club's official website.

"Everything is professional, I just got good impressions.

The transfer is the biggest in the Swedish minnows' history, and their chairman Peter Brandt added: "It's great for Victor and it is important for us."
