Benfica striker Oscar Cardozo is attracting interest from a number of Premier League clubs, his agent has revealed.
Reports have indicated that Manchester City could be interested in acquiring the services of the Paraguayan after opting to sell Carlos Tevez to Juventus.
Cardozo has become an integral part of the first team at the Estadio da Luz since joining from Newell’s Old Boys in 2007, scoring 161 goals in 260 appearances.
However, the 30-year-old is thought to have fallen out with manager Jorge Jesus, and his representative Pedro Aldave admitted that clubs in England are monitoring his situation.
“Benfica knows the situation and now the subject is in their hands,” Aldave told Sky Sports .
“There has always been interest from Premier League but now this is real interest.”
Cardozo netted 33 goals in all competitions last term as the Lisbon club agonisingly missed out in the finals of the Taca de Portugal and UEFA Europa League, while finishing second in the Primeira Liga behind Porto.
