Benfica starlet Joao Felix is reportedly a target for Premier League high-flyers Wolverhampton Wanderers – and many others.

Joao Felix may be just 19 years of age but that does not mean he would not be a huge signing for Wolverhampton Wanderers with The Mirror claiming that they are in pole position to lure him away from Benfica.

Since Chinese billionaires Fosun completed their takeover back in the summer of 2016, Wolves have brought some truly fabulous footballers to Molineux from Portuguese number one Rui Patricio to Monaco playmaker Joao Moutinho.

And don’t forget about Ruben Neves, famously the youngest captain in Champions League history.

Felix, meanwhile, is a teenage midfielder who has only been playing first-team football for a few months.

But he is one of the most exciting young talents anywhere in world football, a player coveted by Juventus, Real Madrid, PSG, Bayern Munich and AC Milan, according to AS, with a £105 million release clause in his contract.

Benfica have already turned down a £40 million bid from a Premier League club, AS add.

But with Portuguese super-agent Jorge Mendes pulling the strings at Molineux, don’t rule out Wolves sealing a deal for arguably the world’s best teenage midfielder.
