Benfica close in on Boca Juniors starlet Nicolas Gaitan

Reports in Portugal suggest Benfica are closing in on the signing of Boca Juniors’ highly-rated 22-year-old winger Nicolas Gaitan .

This would mark Benfica’s third signing for next season alongside deals already agreed for Fabio Faria (Rio Ave) and Franco Jara (Arsenal de Sarandi).

Negotiations between Boca Juniors and Benfica are now at an advanced stage for the transfer of Gaitan and he is now expected to sign for five years with the Portuguese side.

In 2009/2010, Gaitan has scored seven goals and provided six assists in 31 appearances for Boca Juniors.

    Gaitan is a forward not an enganche.

    He is definitely talented. Gaitan has pace, dribbling skills and can score goals.

    The recent injuries set him back but he is a promising player.
