Wolves Are Trying To Sign One Of The Hottest Talents In World Football

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the 19-year-old who is attracting the interest of some of the world's biggest clubs - and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Described as 'the next Cristiano Ronaldo' by many, wonderkid Joao Felix is the most wanted teenager in the game right now, with The Mirror reporting earlier this week that Manchester United and PSG are the two sides chasing his signature.

In a shock twist, though, Premier League side Wolves are the latest club to be linked with Benfica's hottest prospect.

According to Dean Jones of Bleacher Report, the youngster has a huge release clause but there is hope that with Jorge Mendes involved, something can be negotiated.

Of course, Wolves currently have the likes of Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho and Rui Patricio in their ranks, so the prospect of Felix settling in at Molineux is certainly plausible.

It must be noted that Felix is also represented by super agent Jorge Mendes, who could be in line for his latest massive pay day.

Let's just say Wolves aren't the only side in the mixer for Benfica's biggest prize.

According to Fox Sports, Manchester United sent scouts their Europa League game against Galatasaray on Thursday to watch the 19-year-old attacking midfielder in action.

Italian champions Juventus are also being linked, with Felix and his agent Mendes meeting with officials on Wednesday to discuss a potential transfer.

Felix has scored seven goals and provided four assists in just 14 games for his team this season, so you can see why he is such hot property at present.

Who will snap him up? Or will he stay at Benfica?
