Hoffenheim joins the race for Wigan target

The promising forward has impressed for Mexican side Santos Laguna this season.

Santos Laguna want £10million for their highly rated striker.

“Benitez is one we’re looking at,” said Wigan boss Steve Bruce last week.

“It’s the way forward for us to go and look for another Amr Zaki.

“I’d love to sign five or six Lee Cattermoles at 20 or 21, but it’s not possible.”
