Wolves to battle Liverpool for ‘7 in 13’ Portuguese prodigy
Wolves are the latest club to be credited with an interest in Joao Felix.
The 19-year-old starlet, who’s been tearing it up with Benfica this season, is being targeted by Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, who have close links to super-agent Jorge Mendes.
We’d normally suggest this was farfetched, but Wolves bought Ruben Neves when they were in the Championship – so anything is possible when it comes to Portuguese recruits due to their relationship with Mendes.
As a player, Felix is extremely skilful, versatile and has both technical and creative qualities – as evidenced by his seven goals and three assists in just 13 league games this term…
There’s certainly a player in there, but with multiple suitors, it remains to be seen where he’ll end up.
As Liverpool fans, we’d prefer the club spent big on Nicholas Pepe of Lille, and have outlined the reasons why, here.
But the summer is a long way away, and we have a Premier League title to win first!
Here’s a YouTube compilation of Felix to get an idea of the player in question…
