Wolves and Joao Felix – the latest twist as Liverpool come clean on transfer interest and Manchester United get a £60m green light – Premier League latest


Benfica wonderkid Joao Felix has a new set of admirers – Atletico Madrid.

The world’s most coveted teenager this summer has attracted interest from the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus, while Wolves were linked before the end of last season.

His well known release clause which stands at £105m, must be met; Benfica aren’t interested in doing business this transfer window for any less.

Felix, now a full Portugal international who helped his country win the UEFA Nations League last week, has indicated previously that he’s happy to remain at the Estadio da Luz despite interest from around Europe.

Now, reports in Spain claim that Atleti have stepped up their interest after boss Diego Simeone identified him as his top target this summer.

What’s happening at Wolves?

Say no, Wolves

Helder Costa was arguably Wolverhampton Wanderers’ poorest performing player last season, writes Ben Husband.

Now that may seem a strange way to start an argument to keep the Portuguese winger, but him leaving goes against everything Fosun have done since arriving at Molineux in 2016.

Leeds United have been strongly linked with a move for Costa, who initially arrived at Wolves way back in the summer of 2016.

Little known to most Wolves fans upon his arrival, the ex-Monaco winger wowed every single person that saw him in the old gold.

In what was unquestionably the worst season under this ownership, Costa was astounding.

A look at all the latest big Premier League news

Liverpool believe they are being linked with Nicolas Pepe to drive the player’s price up ahead of one of the biggest moves of the summer.

The  Lille  frontman is set to be on the move this summer after his 22 goals helped fire Lille to second place in France’s Ligue 1.

But it doesn’t look as though he is heading to Anfield, as  Liverpool  boss Jurgen Klopp is only looking to make tweaks to his Champions League-winning squad.

Liverpool are to offer Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain  a 12-month extension to his current deal  , and so are not likely to splash out big transfer fees on attacking reinforcements.

The Reds have been linked with Ivory Coast international Pepe, with L’Equipe recently reporting Liverpool had already tabled a £70m bid.
