Wolverhampton wanderers are reportedly plotting a summer move for Manchester United and Arsenal target Joao Felix.
The West Midlands side had reportedly sent scouts to watch the Portuguese outfit in action this week according to TheSun, with the report recognizing the 19-year-old Benfica star has been under the keen eye of scouts from the likes of Manchester United, Juventus, Atletico Madrid, Manchester City, Fulham, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Bayer Leverkusen, AC Milan, Napoli and Inter Milan, among others in recent times.
Felix is tied to the club until 2023, and despite Wolves’ special link with Jorge Mendes who have set up several deals for the Premier League side, it would seem almost impossible to broker a deal for the Portuguese international valued at £105 million in the transfer market.
The 19-year-old second striker has made 29 appearances for the club so far in the season, scoring 11 goals and providing six assists. And has seemingly admitted to favour a move to Juventus in hope to team up with his long time icon Cristiano Ronaldo.
Previously revealing to tuttorsports, he said: “I’d like to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo because he’s simply the best. He’s an idol, a world icon, an example for everyone.
“All the best Portuguese players have gone to play in the most important foreign leagues, and of course I’d like to do that too.”
Although no official offer has been made for Joao Felix, the Old Lady’s are keen on sealing the deal, with Juventus Sporting director reportedly meeting with Benfica president Luis Filipe vieira and Jorge Mendes just last month.
