Italian publication Tuttosport, and Football Italia, claim Juve will both free up space in the squad and raise money for Felix by selling the sought after Paulo Dybala.
Dybala has recently lost his starting place under manager Max Allegri and his future with the Old Lady remains uncertain.
Juve have been linked with a sale for Dybala for some time, with initial reports in March suggesting the Italians would look to orchestrate a swap deal with Liverpool in order to sign Mohamed Salah.

Manchester United have also been linked with Dybala, and have been tipped to make a £120m bid for the Argentine’s services.
Reports in Portugal claim Felix has a 120m euro release clause within his current Benfica deal, which a club will have to trigger should they wish to acquire the services of the 19-year-old.
Felix recently hit a Europa League hat-trick as Benfica defeated Eintracht Frankfurt in the first-leg, quarter-final stage of the competition.
