The Paraguay international has often been linked with a move to England in the past but Pedro Aldave claims that the forward's unnamed suitors are more closely following him than before.

"Benfica knows the situation and now the subject is in their hands," the agent told Sky Sports.

"There has always been interest from Premier League but now this is real interest."
