Benfica are considering a £112m offer from Atletico Madrid for Joao Felix, the club has confirmed.
"Atletico Madrid submitted a proposal for the acquisition of (Felix) for a total amount of 126,000,000 euros which is being analysed," Benfica said in a statement to the Portuguese Securities Market Commission.
The 19-year-old scored 15 goals and registered nine assists last season, and his potential transfer would be the fifth most expensive in history behind Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele.
He would also become the second-most expensive teenager following Mbappe's move from Monaco to Paris Saint-Germain in 2018.
Felix scored a hat-trick against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League in April, becoming the youngest Benfica player and the youngest Portuguese footballer to score three goals in Europe.
The former Porto youth player made his international debut for Portugal against Switzerland in the Nations League semi-final earlier this month.
