£106m-rated Liverpool and Wolves target Joao Felix chalks up another assist to add to his growing reputation

Liverpool and Wolves have been linked with Joao Felix.

Benfica starlet Joao Felix has been in sensational form this season and it is no surprise to see a host of clubs chasing his signature.

It is remarkable to think that this is his breakthrough season at Benfica; he only made his first-team debut earlier this season.

But the 19-year-old is already a key member of Benfica’s side, operating as an attacking midfielder as they push FC Porto in the Primeira Liga title race.

Last night, Benfica travelled to relegation-threatened Aves and secured a comfortable 3-0 win.

Felix played a key role in this victory, providing an assist for the second goal to add to his burgeoning reputation.

 

In 86 minutes, the teenager completed 24 passes at over 90 per cent success rate, as well as providing a key pass and drawing two fouls (Who Scored).

And his assist meant that Felix now has seven goals and four assists in just 14 league matches for Benfica. These figures have not gone unnoticed as clubs line up to sign him.

Last month, Liverpool had a bid of over £60m rejected for the Portugal youth international, as per Correio da Manha.

And according to TEAMtalk, Wolverhampton Wanderers are hopeful of signing Felix by using super-agent Jorge Mendes to sort the deal.

Portuguese media outlet Record claims that Felix has a hefty €120m buy-out clause (around £106m).

But clubs are hoping to sign him for less and given his performances this season, pulling this off would be a major coup for Wolves or Liverpool.
