Portuguese giants keen on winger

Benfica are reportedly weighing up a summer swoop for Portuguese winger Ricardo Quaresma. Quaresma is contracted to Inter Milan but he has been on loan with Chelsea since the winter transfer window. He was allowed to move to Stamford Bridge after failing to impress under compatriot Jose Mourinho during his five-month stay at Inter. But Quaresma saw Luiz Felipe Scolari sacked just days after his arrival in London and has found playing time extremely limited under Guus Hiddink. He has been used mostly in the Blues' reserve squad and reports in Portugal now suggest that Benfica are monitoring the situation. According to the media stories, Inter are keen to off-load the 25-year-old but want to use him as a bargaining chip in a player-plus-cash deal.
