We had scouts at the Benfica game in midweek
As I commented on the scouting at Lisbon thread, he would shatter our transfer record (though I don't think he'd be anywhere near £100million at this point in his career).
Fantastic prospect, exactly the sort of player we and Fosun want.
It would be a real coup to get him but we are currently a very good fit for any upcoming young Portuguese star and he would get plenty of game time here next season.
I wonder who his agent is. There will be a lot of competition to buy him. Looks very talented.
Was thinking the exact same thing a while back, seriously impressive.
Totally unrelated but Portugal have a very forward thinking and progressive Drugs Policy as well. They do a lot things right.
Portugal’s radical drugs policy is working. Why hasn’t the world copied it?
Wow... he looks impressive.
Someone should do a welcome to Wolves video on YouTube like Liverpool and Real Madrid have done. That should swing it.
why on earth aren't we doing similar ?
Just read a crazy stat that only Messi has more goals and assists than him in his first 1,000 minutes of football. He has more than Ronaldo, Mbappe & Neymar achieved in theirs
Looks a very slight lad, with little or no physicality so much so that Porto released him from their youth set up before Benfica picked him up
Hard to pin down what type of player he is, come compare him in style to Zidane or Rui Costa and come say he's more of a Bernardo Silva or Cryuff as he likes to roam freely around the pitch
But he can finish, use both feet and is apparently good in the air too
He's clearly a very special talent but the competition and the apparent 120 Euros price tag would suggest this player would be out of our reach, even with our ties to Benfica and Portugal in general. But you never know I guess
The new Talisca??
Is he Ruben in disguise.
Sorry, but just cannot see this happening. He'll end up at Real Madrid or Barca, especially for the price they're looking for.
Signing João Felix would be unbelievable
Going to be a top player.
At some point in the future possibly the summer we will make a signing that makes the football world say wow. A player to take us to the next level and meet Fosuns ambition. Could Felix be that player?
Me neither, I was just reading that Liverpool had a £61 mil bid turned down in January. Shame though.
looks in good company here.
Fosun's mantra is value, and £61m for a teenager doesn't fit.
He could go on to be worth far far more than that just look at Mbappe for example.
120 Euros? I'll pay it today if they want. Bargain!
I’m not saying it is for felix I haven’t seen enough to say if he’s good or not
But 61m could actually be value and you shouldn’t be naive in thinking it has to be low price to be value purchase
I think I want to live in the Moutinho house
Just looked at the Youtube video.
Get him in.
If everyone at Chorley chucks a tenner in we could crowd-fund him.
I absolutely agree with what you're saying, but £61m is very steep for a young player who could easily flop. You look at the Vinagre signing, and I think we can all see the potential to become one of the best in his position (or even further forward) in the world. We signed him for pennies, so it doesn't really matter if he lives up to the potential. It's a relatively low-risk investment/gamble.
We could get Felix AND Ronaldo with the proceeds!
He's shares have doubled in value in the last 3 months on football index and keep climbing. Even if wolves don't get him, he's making me a tidy little profit.
would look good with a wolves flag drapped from the window
Offer them £35m cash to test their metal.
I too have watched the YouTube compilations, he actually reminds me of George Best
Should we ever want to break in to the top 6 these are the type of signings we are going to have to make.
A year or two to early I’d say unfortunately
Ruben Dias is the other that really interests me. Center back, only 21, already in Portugal squad, Mendes client.
How about this one

Hard to imagine Dias isn't on our radar, he just ticks too many boxes and hopefully we are already working behind the scenes on getting his interest and selling the project
Having said that, I thought the same about Andre Silva in the summer and he's not Nuno's type of player by all accounts so I guess you never know
And a new stadium .
Ps I wasn't at Chorley , can I still post ?
I do think we should sign a really good attacking midfielder, someone like this kid or Talisca, we would then be very well stocked in midfield.
Perhaps this boy is a bit unrealistic though..
Problem then being he’ll probably then sign for one of the big 6. In turn meaning we fall further behind them in the quality stakes as they strengthen and we don’t
We have to try and sign these players now to pursue a top six place
Played a lot with our Diogo at Portuguese youth level. A lad who looks like he's going to be a world beater.
Unfortunately we probably won't get him.
Another excellent prospect. Get him in!
Who are their agents?
No, get off this forum you plastic
