Benfica will reportedly sign 22-year-old central defender Stefan Mitrović. According to A Bola, representatives from his current club K.V. Kortrijk in Belgium, have confimed that the Serbian defender will be at the Estádio da Luz next season. The transfer fee is expected to be 1,1 million Euros. Mitrović will be under contract with the club until 2018.

Mitrović will join countrymen Nemanja Matić who has been a central figure in Benfica’s success this season. The Portuguese club also signed attacking midfielder Filip Đuričić.

Mitrović has become an ever more present figure in the Kortrijk squad in the second half of the campaign. He is physically tall at 1.89m and could kick with both feet.

Former Benfica winger Ljubinko Drulovic told Portuguese radio station Renascença that Mitrović could prove to be an excellent addition to the Portuguese side.

“Mitrović is having an excellent season. He is a young player, with great potential, who plays well with both feet and is very strong with his head. And he still has a large margin for improvement which could be the reason Benfica showed such interest in him. He has many great years ahead of him.”
