Latest Liverpool transfer news: French journalist claims Liverpool are in the race for Joao Felix
Joao Felix is the next big thing in Portuguese football as he continues his great season with Benfica.
The 19-year-old attacker has 16 goals and seven assists for Benfica in all competitions this season.
The youngster even scored a hat-trick against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League but Benfica were eliminated by the Bundesliga side.
Four top clubs interested in Felix
Mohamed Bouhafsi is the chief editor of French outlet RMC Sport and tweeted that four clubs are interested in Felix.
4 clubs se sont d’ores et déjà positionnés auprès de l’entourage de la pépite de Benfica João Félix : Man City (Pep est fan du joueur) la Juventus Turin, Liverpool et Man United. Le joueur va quitter Benfica cet été ! La clause est 120M€ mais pas sur d’être atteinte.

The translated tweet adds that Liverpool, Manchester City, Juventus and Manchester United interested in the Benfica star.
Felix does have a huge release clause of €120m and Bouhafsi added that the Portuguese starlet will leave Benfica in the summer.
Liverpool have a great first XI under Jurgen Klopp at the moment, but we could do with more quality on the bench.
The Reds could do with more creativity in the midfield, however, spending €120m on Felix would be a huge risk by the club.
The 19-year-old hasn’t played in the Premier League, and for that sort of money, we could sign two quality players.
