FC Twente’s Bryan Ruiz on SL Benfica and FC Porto radar – Dutch Eredivisie news
FC Twente Enschede’s Bryan Ruiz Gonzalez has performed impressively throughout the season and his good performances have not gone unnoticed outside of Netherlands. A host of top European clubs are eager to sign the striker in the upcoming summer transfer
market. Portuguese Liga outfits, FC Porto and SL Benfica, are the latest to show keen interest in adding the 25-year-old striker to their ranks.
The Dragons are in the market for a striker as Radamel Falcao and Hulk are being heavily linked to join a top European club in the summer. The Portuguese giants are looking to find an ideal replacement and the team management sees the 25-year-old as a perfect
addition to their front-line.
The Eagles ended their 2010/11 Portuguese Liga campaign in a rather disappointing fashion. They finished second in the league table, a mammoth 21 points behind the Dragons. They lacked firepower and creativity in their front-line. The Eagles have reportedly
shown keen interest in signing the Costa Rican International, as they want to add more creativity in their front-line through which they can mount a Portuguese Liga title assault next season.
The 25-year-old striker, who can also play as a winger, joined the Tukkers in 2009/10 season and played an important role in his side’s Eredivisie triumph under the leadership of Steve McClaren. The highlight of his season was the quick hat-trick in March
2010 against Sparta Rotterdam where he bagged three goals in just five minutes against.
The Costa Rican is a technically gifted striker and has become one of the most promising stars for the Tukkers. He has scored 32 goals in 57 appearances for Twente in his two-year stay at De Grolsch Veste.
The 25-year-old striker has previously been heavily linked with La Liga outfits, Sevilla FC and Villarreal CF, who were eager to take his signature in the winter transfer market.
The KNVB beker Cup winners have reportedly set a 10 million Euro price tag on their prized asset. Reports suggest that FC Twente management are keen to hold on to their star player for the next couple of seasons. However, with a host of top European clubs
taking keen interest in signing the 25-year-old striker, it seems unlikely that he would be plying his trade in Enschede the next season.
