Benfica president Luis Filipe Vieira suggests that there is little desire to part ways with Carlos Vinicius, an alleged target for Liverpool and Wolves.

Benfica president Luis Filipe Vieira has claimed that Carlos Vinicius will only be sold for €100m (£89.1m).

The 25-year-old has impressed for the Portuguese giants this season, contributing 16 goals and four assists from 29 appearances in all competitions.

However, although Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers have been heavily linked with the attacker, it appears that he will be priced out of a move.

Speaking to BTV, Vieira said: "I received an offer of €60m (£53.5m) for Vinícius and did not sell. He is priced at €100m.

"If it weren't for the pandemic, Benfica would have had two players sold for €100m each."

Vinicius still has over four years remaining on his contract at Estadio da Luz.
