Odds slashed on a Premier League team signing Benfica wonderkid Joao Felix

Juventus, Man Utd, Man City and PSG are all said to be interested in the teenager.

Wolves have been cut into second favourites to sign Benfica starlet Joao Felix, following a stream of bets on the youngster’s next permanent club. 

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have been slashed from 8/1 into 4/1 to secure his services in the summer, meaning the Black Country team are now more likely than Manchester United and City.

That’s due to a plethora of punting activity on Felix’s next club, with 26% of all bets backing Wolves as his next employers. 

In fact, the Premier League new boys only trail Serie A giants Juventus (3/1) in the bookies’ estimations of where the Portuguese midfielder will end up.

Elsewhere, PSG and Manchester United are both less likely than Wolves at 5/1 each, followed by Manchester City (8/1) and West Ham (8/1)

Reports suggest Manchester City have earmarked Felix as a long-term replacement for David Silva, whilst Manchester United are believed to also be scouting the 19-year-old.

Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek: “Joao Felix has some of the biggest clubs in the world chasing him, but Wolves do seem to have an advantage when shopping in Portugal.

“With both Wolves and Leicester recruiting some of Europe's top talent, could the days of the Big 6 be under threat?”
