Chelsea and Arsenal target Joao Felix has put pen to
paper on a contract extension deal with Benfica, this is
according to transfer.
The youngster joined the B team of Benfica in 2015 and
he has broken into the first team of the side despite his
age.
It was claimed earlier this year that the Gunners sent a
scout to watch the star and it is believed that they have
retained their interest in him.
The attacking midfielder is a regular feature for
the Portugal u21s, where he has scored four goals in
eight games. He has continued to increase his stock
with a series of impressive performances. According to Portuguese outlet Record, the player has
signed a new deal with the Primera Liga club in which
his wages has been doubled from €60 million to €120
million.
Although Chelsea bolstered their squad in the summer,
Felix is high up on the radar of Chelsea, as it is claimed
that Sarri is a huge fan of the rising star.
Benfica have realised if they don’t sign him to a deal,
they may not get the most from any possible deal to
sell in sooner
