Cardozo to Serie A?

Benfica striker Oscar Cardozo is a target for Fiorentina and Juventus, according to reports in the Spanish Press.

Madrid-based newspaper AS believes that the Paraguay international is being tracked by the Serie A pair, but could come under competition from Atletico Madrid and Chelsea for his signature.

Antonio Conte's side have been looking for that illusive star-striker since the summer, and may turn to the Aguias forward if their bid to sign Athletic Bilbao's Fernando Llorente fails.

The Viola meanwhile, have started the season in tremendous fashion, but after the news of an injury to top-scorer Stevan Jovetic, could look to the former Newell's old Boys man for their goals.

Cardozo has been a lynchpin of the Benfica side for five years now, joining in 2007 and scoring 128 goals in 217 matches.

A bid of around €20m is likely to prize him away from the Lisbon club.
