Portuguese daily newspaper A Bola claims that Benfica have set the asking price for Swedish defender Victor Lindelof to €30 million.
The 21-year-old started the current season as a back-up, but he took his chance as a couple of centre-backs picked up injuries and ended up playing an important role in helping the Eagles defend the league trophy.
Lindelof has done so well that top European clubs started casting admiring glances his way, with Barcelona, Real Madrid and Borussia M’gladbach just some of the sides interested in his signature.
And having already cashed in on Renato Sanches and Nicolas Gaitan, Benfica are under no pressure to sell Lindelof as well, and are, therefore, referring interested clubs to his €30 million release clause.
The talented defender appears to have nailed down a regular starting berth in the Sweden national team, who are 6/4 favourites to win their opening Euro 2016 fixture against Republic of Ireland.
