The Sun did however, report just a few days ago that the Brazilian midfielder was on the verge of a £20 million move to Wolves.
The report claimed that Wolves new owners Fosun used their ties to super agent Jorge Mendes’ management company – Gestifute – to reach an agreement with Benfica.
Liverpool have also been closely linked with the 22-year-old midfielder who looks set for a move to Turkey.
NTV report that Besiktas were able to convince the youngster with the lure of first-team Champions League football and the likelihood of being involved in a title race.
