Roger Schmidt and Benfica target Feyenoord midfielder Frederic Orsnes | sports

Coach Roger Schmidt wants to bring Frederic Orsnes to Benfica. Feyenoord confirms his interest in the Norwegian midfielder, but the Portuguese record champion has yet to make an offer.

Aursnes came from Molde FK on August 10 last year for €450,000. The 26-year-old midfielder played 47 games for Feyenoord last season, in which he provided four assists and scored a goal in the first leg in Kambur (2-3 win) in October.

According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Benfica has 15 million euros to remove Ornes from Rotterdam. Aursnes is still under contract with Feyenoord until mid-2024. Aursnes also became an international for Norway in June last year and is now on eight caps, but has been on the bench twice against the Dutch national team.

Earlier this summer, Feyenoord already sold left-back Terrell Malacia (15 million euros) to Manchester United and left winger Luis Sinistera (25 million euros) Leeds United. Brian Linsen went to Japan’s Urawa Red Diamonds for 1.3 million euros. Hired players Guus Til, Reiss Nelson, Philippe Sandler and Cyriel Dessers no longer play in Feyenoord.

In recent weeks, Arne Slot has been allowed to add Javairô Dilrosun (4 million euros from Hertha BSC), Mats Weffer (575,000 euros from Excelsior), Danilo (free transfer from Ajax) and Mohamed Taabouni (free transfer from AZ) to his selection. .

Benfica has already sold €105m to players this summer. The club received from Lisbon 75 million euros for striker Darwin Nunez, who went to Liverpool. David Neres is the most expensive purchase to date. The Brazilian striker came from Shakhtar Donetsk for 15 million euros. Argentine midfielder Enzo Fernandez came from River Plate for 10 million euros.
