Udinese goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis would jump at the opportunity to sign for Benfica, according to his official representative.
The Eagles are believed to be keen on the Greece international as they search for a successor to Jan Oblak, and the latest reports suggest an agreement is on the horizon.
Karnezis’ agent has now moved to confirm that his client is interested in a summer move to Estadio da Luz.
“Benfica would be a good project for him. Does Karnezis want to join Benfica? Of course! Who would not want to play for a top club?”, agent Vasileos Panagiotakis told O Jogo.
Despite entering the late stage of his career, the 29-year-old does not have too much top flight experience, having made mere 60 league appearances so far.
Karnezis, nonetheless, earned a switch to Udinese last summer, but was immediately loaned to Granada, where he went on to make 6 league outings.
Even so, he was elected Greece’s number one for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, making four appearances as his side reached the Last 16 stage.
