Feyenoord, the Dutch champion, remains very interested in securing the Ola John contest, which ended Benfica's last loan to Deportivo La Coruna.

The Telegraph newspaper of Amsterdam points out, however, that Benfica is asking for a "very high fee" for the player, without, however, specifying values.

Ola John, 25, is now in her last contract year with Benfica, having been hired for 12 million euros in a joint venture with the investment group Doyen in the summer of 2012.
