parzysekParzyszek is currently the top scorer in the Dutch second division, with 15 goals in 17 games, and has attracted the attention of Portuguese giants Benfica.

The 20-year-old striker, who netted 10 in 28 games last season, is a Polish U-21 international, but is also eligible to represent Netherlands.

De Graafschap director Roland Vroomans has stated to Algemeen Dagblad that the club will not sell their star in January, and Benfica will have to make a big offer in the summer to tempt them to part with the striker.

He said, “We want him to stay. It’s not that we did want to keep him for the rest of the season at all costs.

“But Benfica must tempt us with a very good offer. We are not going to let him go in the winter though.

“Piotr is very important to us, as are his goals. We want to finish as high as possible and we need to have him for this in the second half of the season. If he stays, he can also be the top scorer of the Jupiler League.
