Wigan keen on Benitez

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

“Benitez is one we’re looking at,” said Bruce in the Daily Mirror.

“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.”

Reports suggest Bruce is ready to make an £8 million offer for Benitez in January.
