Benfica, Porto battle for Jimenez

Atletico Madrid striker Raul Jimenez is wanted by both Benfica and Porto, according to reports from Portugal.

AS cite A Bola as saying the Mexico international is on the agenda for both clubs and it is Benfica who lead the way.

Benfica would prefer a loan move with a view to a permanent transfer and Atleti have already fielded loan requests from a number of La Liga teams.

Ateltico have this summer signed Jackson Martinez – from Porto – and Villarreal’s Luciano Vietto, and sold Mario Mandzukic to Juventus.

Jimenez has been at Vicente Calderon for 12 months, signing in the summer of 2014 from Club America. He managed only one goal in his first season in Spain.
