It’s claimed that Benfica, Sporting, Boca Juniors and Brighton are all interested in Uribe after watching him featuring for Colombia during the Copa America.
There are no big details about how much he would cost, or if there are talks with all these clubs. But these sides should be aware of how close Porto are to signing him, since the Portuguese media have been quite confident.
Southampton had also been linked to the player this summer, but it seems those rumours have disappeared.
