Brest to sign Herberito Tavares from Benfica

L’Équipe report that Ligue 1 side Brest are poised to sign 23-year-old wide attacker Herberito Tavares from Benfica.

He normally plays on the left side of the attack, having spent the 2019/20 campaign on loan at Boavista, making 28 league appearances, scoring four goals and providing 1 assist.

This Friday, Brest Sporting Director Grégory Lorenzi was still in negotiations to close a deal for the Portuguese youth international, who arrived in Brest this afternoon.

At the same time, manager Olivier Dall’Oglio was asked about the player during a friendly match against Lorient:

“We are getting there. He is an interesting player, versatile, who can play on both sides and even centrally. He is a grafter, works to break the lines and dribbles nicely. He has a profile that we don’t have at the moment.”
