Liverpool is also after him...Benfica rejects Chelsea's €60m offer for the 20-year-old defender Transfers

Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk, and other center backs who supported Jurgen Klopp’s first regime are both 32 years old. As their careers are coming to an end, there is a lot of talk about securing young center backs for the next chapter of their careers.

Portuguese defender Antonio Silva, who plays for Benfica, is one of the players reported as a target. The 20-year-old is a gem of a player who is being sought not only by Liverpool, but also by Manchester United and other top clubs.

According to A Bola, Chelsea, also in the Premier League, prepared a transfer fee of 60 million euros and made an offer to Benfica. However, that offer was immediately rejected, and it appears that a huge sum of around 120 million euros will be required.

Since making his debut for the Portuguese national team in 2022, he has already played seven games. With his club, he is close to “70” games on the pitch and has also gained a lot of experience in the Champions League with 14 games.

He is one of the best young center backs in Europe, and the competition for him is fierce. He is also being watched closely by clubs outside of England, and his departure is being closely watched. However, he also leaves the option of stepping up his game in Portugal.

Which club will the Benfica defender, who may be the next generation of players, play for in his new home?
