Joao Felix is one of the most talented and promising young forwards in Europe, and there is no surprise that Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers are among the clubs reportedly interested in signing the teenager from Benfica in the summer transfer window.

According to The Mirror, Wolves want to bring the 19-year-old forward to the Molineux Stadium in the summer of 2019.

The Mirror has also credited Liverpool, Manchester United, Paris Saint-German and Arsenal with interest in securing the services of the Portugal Under-21 international.

However, it seems that Liverpool and Wolves are not going to find it easy to sign Felix.

According to Gianlucadimarzio.com, Felix has a release clause of €120 million (£103.56m), but his club, Benfica, want to increase it to €200m (172.59m).

Calciomercato.com has claimed that the youngster will say yes to Juventus, with the Italian giants also reported to be keen on the Portuguese talent.

Liverpool and Wolves are rich clubs, but it is hard to see the Premier League duo pay €120m (£103.56m) or €200m(172.59m).
