Samaris on sale at Benfica
Andreas Samaris will likely depart Benfica during the winter transfer window if a favorable offer comes in for the Greek international.
The 28-year old has struggled to find playing time this season at the club level and is expected to leave Benfica during the winter transfer window. According to A Bola, the Portuguese champions have put the Greek player on a list of departing players along with Eliseu, Douglas, Lisandro Lopez, Rafa Silva, and Gabriel Barboza.
Samaris was close to move to Sunderland and Newcastle over the summer, however negotiations fell through as Benfica’s asking price was over €15 million. The English top flight remains the likely destination for Samaris if he departs Benfica this winter with Newcastle, Sunderland, and West Ham having expressed interest in the player.
