Liverpool & Tottenham watch Benfica duo Antonio Silva & Florentino Luis

Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur were among several teams who had scouts present at Benfica’s 2-0 win over Famalicao last Friday, with both keeping watchful eyes over Antonio Silva and Florentino Luis, sources have told 90min.

The Eagles moved eight points clear atop the Primeira Liga table and have enjoyed a superb season, with a number of talented youngsters playing pivotal roles.

Among those have been centre-back Silva and midfielder Luis, and 90min understands that they are of interest to Liverpool and Tottenham.

19-year-old Silva is enjoying a fine breakout campaign for Benfica, already featuring 31 times in all competitions during his first season in the senior setup.

Silva’s impressive form so early into his career led to him earning a place in Portugal’s squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, becoming the youngest player to represent the Selecao on such a stage when he started in their dead rubber group stage match against South Korea.

With Silva playing most of their games at the heart of defence, Benfica have conceded just 13 goals in 23 league games this season.
