Joao Felix was present for the Liverpool vs Chelsea Carabao Cup final at Wembley on Sunday.
In a post from Watch LFC on Twitter, the 22-year-old is pictured at the end of the Liverpool stadium. Having just scored against Manchester United last Wednesday, he watched as Red Devils beat Chelsea about penalties. The 22-year-old appeared in Liverpool’s final at the EFL Cup final, all wearing a hood, sunglasses and a mask.
Since moving to Spain for a staggering £133m, Joao Felix has started just 43 of 102 possible La Liga games for Atletico Madrid to date. His 16 goals in that time are not a great testament to the huge sums the Madrid club paid to sign him from Benfica. Felix has started just eight of Atletico’s 26 games in La Liga this season, scoring three goals and providing three assists.
Despite his struggles, this shouldn’t be placed entirely on the player himself. Joao Felix is clearly a player with huge talent. Diego Simeone’s Atletico play a notoriously defensive style of football that doesn’t always suit the softer and more technical Felix.
Joao Felix is on the move
While the 22-year-old may have just arrived in the UK to watch the game, Liverpool Fans will be delighted that he was linked with the club not too long ago. His difficulties at Atletico have led to speculation that the 22-year-old could be ready to leave Madrid and Liverpool are among the potential destinations for the Portugal international.
As reported in FourFourTwo In December of last year, Spanish reports noted the interest of The Reds. Liverpool are said to be looking for a £63million deal to bring Felix to Anfield.
Joao Felix is an extremely interesting talent, possessing the ability to become a superstar as many see him as the perfect successor to Roberto Firmino. Although Diogo Jota has done a pretty good job so far, he’s not a fan of swapping places for the Brazilian forward.
The Reds’ win at Wembley is a sign of what remains to be seen. But it is certain that his appearance will cause excitement in the fan community.
