A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Ben Jacobs revealed that Chelsea are hoping to sign Joao Felix, who is currently playing on loan from Atletico Madrid, permanently next summer. It is understood that the Blues are already making plans to sign the Portugal international when his loan spell ends later this year.

Felix’s Impressive Start To His Chelsea Career

Felix has made a decent start to his life at Stamford Bridge as he has already put in a couple of impressive displays for Graham Potter’s side in the final third. The 23-year-old has found the back of the net six times and earned three assists in 22 matches for both Chelsea and Atletico Madrid this season across all competitions.

The Portuguese sensation has led the line well for the West London club based on his average of 4.5 shots, 1.5 key passes and 2.0 dribbles per game in the Premier League. He has even been accurate when linking up play with others around him in the final third, as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 78.9% in the English top tier (stats via whoscored).

The Visue-born talent is playing at a high level at the moment and could help Chelsea challenge for a European spot in the Premier League this season. Therefore, it makes sense for the Blues to make an attempt to sign him permanently next summer.


Chelsea Are Hoping To Sign Felix Permanently: Good Move For Everyone Involved?

Felix has got the pace to cause a lot of problems for his marker out on the wide areas. He can be a decent finisher in front of the opponent’s goal when he is playing with confidence on the field. Felix is primarily a centre-forward but can also play as a left-winger if needed.

The Portuguese sensation can also make some clever runs with the ball in behind the opponent’s backline. He has settled into life in England well and is currently one of the first names in Graham Potter‘s teamsheet.

At the moment, Felix is enjoying his football at the West London club and could help the Blues challenge for a top-six finish in the Premier League table this season.

Based on his current form, it is no surprise that Chelsea are showing interest in signing Felix permanently next summer. All in all, it will be a good move for both the player and the London club to continue their time together beyond the end of this campaign.
