The MLS side recently recruited one former Eagles player as they signed forward Yannick Djalo in March and they seem to plan to continue shopping in Portugal.
A Bola has learned that San Jose Earthquakes are set to make an assault on Benfica midfielder Carlos Martins.
Despite enjoying several successful years at Estadio da Luz, the 32-year-old is no longer in the first team plans of boss Jorge Jesus and he will probably be offloaded this summer.
Seeing as how Martins has a high salary and two years left on his current deal, it is expected that he will be available on a cut-price deal.
The experienced footballer was relegated to the reserve squad at the start of last season and he hasn’t made a single appearance for the senior squad during the 2013/2014 campaign.
