Portuguese club SL Benfica star Joao Felix is one of the most promising young forwards in Europe, and there’s no surprise that Premier League duo Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers are among the sides reportedly interested in landing the teenager this summer transfer market.
According to a British daily tabloid newspaper the Daily Mirror, Wolves keen to bring the 19-year-old sensation to the Molineux Stadium in the summer window of 2019.
The same article has also credited Liverpool, Paris Saint-German, Manchester United and Arsenal with an interest in securing the signature of the Portugal U21 international.
However, it looks like Liverpool and Wolves aren’t going to find it easy to land Felix.
According to sports TV channel Sky Sports Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Joao has a release (exit/buy-out) clause of €120 million (£103 million), but his club, SL Benfica, want to increase it to €200 million (172m).
Another Italian source Calciomercato.com has stated that the teenager will say yes to Massimiliano Allegri’s Juventus, with the Italian heavyweights also reported to be interested in the Portuguese talent.
Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanders are rich clubs, but it’s hard to see the English pair pay €120 million or €200 million for the prodigy.
Meantime, Wolves are also interested in another Portuguese talent and it is Liverpool’s Rafa Camacho.
He is a potential summer transfer target for Wolves, according to a Portuguese newspaper O Jogo, via Sport Witness.
The youngster looks set to depart the Reds at the end of the campaign, having failed to agree on a fresh contract at Anfield.
However, It’s not known whether the club are interested in a temporary or permanent move for Rafel.
