With several clubs moving players to and from their ranks to others and so forth, Birmingham City is no exception.
The club is looking to transfer the Portugal striker from their ranks to the Blues who are looking for a similar player. Nelson Oliveira is known as the Benfica striker in whom the club is interested this season. He is known to play the center forward position. He has won about twelve caps for his country. He would definitely be an asset for the attacking positions that the team wishes to fortify this season. It is rumored that the player is available on loan. He is also being looked at by the rival club, Sheffield. The club is the rivals of the Birmingham which might mean that the club would have to step up their offer.
The Blues have been considering getting a move for the 24 year old. He had been given on loan the last season to Nottingham Forest. In 29 games that he played in a Forest last season he helped in scoring nine times. The end season games were missed out by him as he suffered from a groin injury. The career of this player has been built in Benfica, which has been his parent club.
He has been loaned out six times till now. Hence, it is believed that he will be able to prove himself if he is taken up by Birmingham City. On the other hand, if he is loaned out to Scheffield, it would definitely be a blow for Birmingham City. It is believed that Birmingham city managers have several strategies up their sleeves to spruce up the ranks ahead of the new season. With the friendly matches being on, it is the perfect time to get the new players on board who can then be made adjusted to the ranks and the playing style for the club.
