#1 Alejandro Grimaldo- Benfica

Benfica v Moreirense FC - Primeira Liga
Grimaldo could be an inspired signing

Grimaldo will not be travelling to Russia with the Spanish team. Jordi Alba and Nacho Monreal are Spain's choices at left-back but if either of them gets injured, expect the Benfica man to be called up.

Grimaldo is only 22-years-old in the 2017-18 season, he started 28 games in the Liga NOS and has a goal and 4 assists to his name. The Spaniard graduated from Barcelona's youth system after joining from Valencia's in 2008. He never made it to the Barca squad but played 98 games for the B team after being handed his debut in 2011.

He joined Benfica in the 2015-16 season's January transfer window. Grimaldo showcases impressive workrate and is a very good passer of the ball. He's good with the dead ball, can use the width down the left flank and put good crosses into the box which the likes of Romelu Lukaku can feast on.

Grimaldo will also be an upgrade on Ashley Young as he is a good tackler of the ball and is in general, very defensively sound. But here's the kicker, Grimaldo could be also be signed for close to £30 million. And for that money, he could be a steal.
