During the last summer transfer window, Dario Benedetto was loaned with option to buy Elche by OM. Nonetheless, the striker is struggling in La Liga and is said to be looking for a new home base this winter. Thus, Boca Juniors would do everything possible to recruit the Argentinian in January.

Dario Benedetto can no longer do it at Elche . Loaned with option to purchase by OM Last summer, the Argentine lost his starting place in Liga since mid-October, where the 31-year-old striker has a meager record of 2 goals in 14 appearances. Last December, Dario Benedetto then shared his desire to one day return to Boca Juniors , where he played between 2016 and 2019: “I said that when I left for OM. I will come back to Boca, whether as a supporter or as a player. I am grateful to the supporters of Boca for all the affection they have towards me. I hope I can come back as soon as possible. This is good for Benedetto , since the club of Buenos Aires would like more than anything to secure the services of the center forward this winter.

< h2> “Benedetto would be a huge addition to the team”

In an interview for TyC Sports, Jorge Bermudez , leader within Boca Juniors , confirmed that the Argentine team were greatly interested in the return of Dario Benedetto : “We are working day after day, minute after minute, we know and we are clear that Benedetto would be a huge addition to the team, he would bring a lot. The club is making the effort. It's not easy, we are going to fight seriously, we are not going to say anything outside of reality. We are very excited. It is a big economic blow. The French club (OM) paid nearly 18 million for Pipa. Boca must use the tools to achieve this. Despite this strong desire to recruit Benedetto , Boca Juniors has yet to come to an understanding with OM , to which the Argentine still belongs. According to L'Équipe, the operation could take the form of a paid loan, while Boca Juniors could buy part of the federative rights of the 31-year-old.

” We will do everything we can ”

For his part, Jorge Bermudez however reminded TyC Sports that the transfer of Dario Benedetto was far from easy to set up: “It all depends on how the negotiation develops and ends. We are studying all possible alternatives. The work of the player's representative is also ongoing. The parties must come to an agreement and agree on the value of the transaction. It is not easy. There is money we will not be able to ask for. We will do our best, we have the same jersey as the supporters. “The former Colombian international then said that Dario Benedetto was very keen to put on the Xeneizes jersey:” We would not have started the operation (without Benedetto's yes). He surely has the hope, like us, of returning to the club. Boca fans believe in us. It is difficult to compete with the international market even if we have the best motivation. “
