A report from Liverpool Echo suggests that Liverpool are part of the discussion regarding Joao Felix’s potential future destination. At present, Barcelona are extracting the finest performances from Felix, who made the switch to the Spanish club on a season-long loan from Atletico Madrid over the summer. However, Barcelona are anticipated to initiate efforts to secure the forward on a permanent deal with PSG and Arsenal also interested in securing his services next summer.
Felix’s Recent Loan Spell At Camp Nou
Felix is having an impressive loan spell at Barcelona this season as he has managed to put in a few fruitful displays as a part of their attack. The Portuguese sensation has netted three goals in three matches for the Spanish giants, across all competitions.
The 23-year-old has proved his worth as a decent performer in the final third by averaging 1.0 shots, 0.5 key passes and 1.0 dribbles per 90 minutes in La Liga.
He has even been tidy when distributing the ball in the opponent’s half based on his pass success rate of 88.9% in the Spanish first division (stats via whoscored).
Should Klopp Bring Him To Liverpool Next Season?
Felix possesses the skill to carve out space for himself in order to take shots at the opponent’s goal, and he is a proficient finisher in front of the net. His ability to embark on dangerous attacking runs with the ball adds an extra dimension to his game.
With Felix’s calibre, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp could anticipate a boost in offensive firepower. His presence might even enhance Liverpool’s competitiveness in the next season’s Champions League, provided they finish in the top 4.
At the age of 23, Felix exhibits the potential to evolve into a world-class striker in the future. Consequently, he represents a highly appealing prospect for the Merseyside club in the upcoming summer transfer window. In summary, Klopp should undoubtedly prioritize the acquisition of Felix at the conclusion of this season.
