Aberdeen Sign Benfica Striker, Luís Lopes

Aberdeen have confirmed the signing of 22 year old forward, Luís Lopes on a three year deal.

He joins from Benfica for an undisclosed fee.

Luís, also known as ‘Duk’ scored 8 goals in 20 matches for Benfica’s B side last season and has represented Portugal at under 18 and under 19 level and made his international debut for Cape Verde last month.

Jim Goodwin told the club website:  He said: “Luís is another good addition for us at the top end of the pitch and it creates more competition for places, which is something I was keen to build within the squad this year.

“He is quick, strong, and powerful and he fits our recruitment strategy perfectly. He is a young player who still has a lot to learn, and he is not quite the finished article yet, but we firmly believe we will give him the platform to perform and continue his development.

“He’s had a really good football education at Benfica, and I am sure he will come to Aberdeen, score goals, and make a positive impact.”
