The forward was on fire for Heracles last season, scoring 19 goals in 29 Eredivisie matches, which earned him his first caps for the Swedish national team.

A move away from Netherlands was always on the cards this summer and finally, on Wednesday, Seria A newcomers, Benevento confirmed the signing of the 27-year-old on a three-year deal.

Armenteros started his career with Heerenveen before spells with Heracles, Anderlecht, Feyenoord, Willem II, and Qarabağ. He returned to Heracles last summer but leaves after only one season.

Paul Gladon is expected to fill the gap left by Armenteros with Vincent Vermeij playing back-up. Heracles may look to sign a young striker and have Kai Huisman on trial.
