Guilherme Siqueira could leave Atletico Madrid during the January transfer window, according to AS.

The Brazilian full-back has been a virtual spectator at the Vicente Calderon since his compatriot Filipe Luis’ return last summer, having made only one La Liga appearance this term.

Benfica, who had Siqueira on loan in the 2013/14 season, remain keen on the 29-year-old and could offer him an escape route from the Spanish capital.

In addition, AS reports that the good relationship that exists between Atleti and Benfica could help to facilitate a deal.
