The Portuguese side have drawn up a shortlist of .ers who they see as possible alternative to the departed forward and among them is Nigerian striker Sadiq Umar of Almeria.

Sadiq powered Almeria to promotion to the La Liga by finishing as top scorer for the second consecutive season since he joined the club two years ago and that feat hasn’t gone unnoticed per reports in Spain.

Although Almeria are adamant that only the triggering of his buy out clause will make them negotiate his exit, Benfica are however hoping their hope relationship with the Spanish side will work in their favour.

Nunez was signed from Almeria two seasons ago and both teams struck up a very good relationship from the deal. Sadiq who was signed as Nunez’s replacement at Almeria might replace the Uruguayan at Benfica this summer.
