“Another three to four targeted transfers,” announced Sven Jaecques, general manager of Antwerp. Cristian Benavente (26) should be the first.
Benavente is an old acquaintance of Belgian football. Well, ‘old’. The Peruvian offensive midfielder played at Charleroi from January 2016 to January 2019, where he played 102 games, scored 29 times and was certainly one of the stars at the end.
Then he left for the Egyptian Pyramids, which put about 6 million euros on the table, but that was not a success. He played twelve games there, in which he scored three times, but was again rented out to Nantes in France in the summer of 2019, where he also got no further than thirteen games. This of course means that he has now become more feasible for Antwerp, which has been interested in its services for some time. Certainly because he knows the competition well and is versatile – he can go behind the striker and on the flank.
More clubs are interested, but if all goes well and he passes his medical tests, the transfer could be completed quickly. And then they already have a solid reinforcement at the Great Old. But as we already wrote, the positions of the striker and central defender are also crucial. For the position of central defender, there are several players on the list, including two French: Nicolas Isimat-Mirin (28) from Besiktas and his fellow countryman Jérémy Gélin (23) from Rennes.
