San Lorenzo defender Jose Luis Palomino has attracted the interest of Benfica...
The Lisbon powerhouse are in the market for a new defender because of the expected departure of David Luiz and head coach Jorge Jesus considers Palomino to be the perfect replacement.
Palomino is a product of the San Lorenzo youth academy and made his debut for the Azulgrana in 2010 and is seen as one of the best young defenders in Argentina.
The 21-year-old has an ongoing contract with San Lorenzo and an offer of €5 million could be needed to lure him away from his current club.
Benfica are not the only club that are after the defender, as they face stiff competition from arch-rivals Porto in the race for Palomino's services.
