Ankit is a 24-year-old, aspiring to have his voice heard through what he writes. Charismatic and frankly moral, adhering to his principles and beliefs. Out to search for a purpose in life and yet to settle on that matter.

In a recent report, Football.london stated that Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix. It has also been mentioned that the youngster was deemed untouchable until recently when Diego Simeone changed his stance. He is now rumoured to be available in the market.

Felix’s Impressive Campaign For Atletico Madrid

The 22-year-old has been a consistent performer at Wanda Metropolitano as he has been responsible for producing some influential displays in the final third despite being substituted in most of the matches. Felix has featured in 26 matches for the Spanish outfit this season, scoring 9 goals and creating four assists across all fronts.

The Viseu-born talent has made the most out of his appearances after averaging 1.6 shots, 0.8 key passes and 1.3 dribbles per game in the La Liga. However, he has to figure out a way to improve his ball distribution based on his pass completion rate of 75% in the Spanish first division (stats via whoscored).

Should Tottenham Hotspur Boss Antonio Conte Move In For Felix This Summer?

Felix has a strong presence in the attacking end of the field. He excels at creating a yard of space for himself using his pace and quickness. The Atletico forward has proven to be a  prolific finisher in the opposition’s penalty box. Furthermore, he doesn’t mind taking a shot at the goal from a distance.

The Portuguese international is primarily a centre-forward but remains versatile enough to fill in the left-wing position or play as an advanced attacking midfielder. This makes him a decent fit for Conte since the Italian tactician needed decent support for Harry Kane.

Joao Felix has the potential to become a deadly finisher. At 22, he will definitely grow over the coming seasons if he puts in the required work. He would significantly add more firepower to the Lilywhites.

The Spurs could have more squad depth upon his arrival and that would benefit them during a busy schedule in the next campaign. Antonio Conte would be wise to acquire his signature this summer although his price tag could raise a lot of doubts.
