Original reports suggested that the 24-year-old was close to agreeing a deal with the Portuguese giants but general manager Antonio Simoes has moved quickly to dismiss claims that a transfer had been struck, while still hinting that it could happen in the future.
"For now there is nothing happening, the story has no basis," said Simoes.
Boa Morte's agent, Amadeu Paixao also denies that any contact has been made regarding Fulham's on-loan striker.
"It is not true that I have a deal with Benfica," said Paixao. "Until this moment no one from the club has talked to me about that possibility, but nobody knows the future."
