Goias striker Erik Nascimento Lima is reportedly on the radar of Portuguese giants FC Porto and Benfica, O Jogo can reveal.

The player who had come through the youth ranks at Estadio de Haile Pinheiro has been in fine form this season and he has already seen his name linked with several top clubs.

And while the youngster dreams of playing for Flamengo, the latest reports suggest he could be moving to Europe in the near future, with FC Porto and Benfica keen.

The Dragons might need to sign a replacement for Jackson Martinez soon as the Colombian continues to be linked with a move away from the club and Erik appears to be one of the players on their hit-list, although they could face stiff competition from league rivals Benfica.

The 20-year-old forward has so far made a total of 39 league appearances for Goias and scored 10 goals, while scoring in his only outing for Brazil Under-21 side.
