Tottenham, who have been making good progress in the recent transfer market, have now set their sights on a winger who was once dubbed the ‘next Ronaldo’.
Citing Spain’s Pichajes, the UK’s Sportsmail reported on July 7 (KST) that Tottenham have added Joao Felix (25, Barcelona) to their summer signing list, and Spurs could be in the race to sign him from Barcelona.
Felix is a Portuguese forward. He was the most highly-touted prospect since Cristiano Ronaldo (39, Al Nasr). He made headlines when he moved from Benfica to Atletico Madrid in 2019 for a club-record €126 million ($179.7 billion). At the time, it was the fourth highest transfer fee in the world.
Felix scored 20 goals in 43 games for Benfica and 34 goals and 18 assists in 131 games for Atletico Madrid. However, 카지노사이트 after a falling out with coach Diego Simeone, he was loaned out to Chelsea midway through last season and then back to Barcelona this season.
He has seven goals and five assists in 28 games for Barcelona
Including four goals and two assists in 18 league games, but he hasn’t been on the radar of coach Xavi Hernandez. He recently picked up an ankle injury that has sidelined him.
João Felix is also in desperate need. He”ll have to return to Atletico Madrid if Barcelona don”t buy him outright. That would leave him on the bench or out on loan as he’s not on good terms with his manager.
Felix, who is under contract with Atletico Madrid until the summer of 2029, has already experienced failure at Chelsea. His form has also fallen off at Barcelona, and there are suggestions that the Blaugrana may have to exercise their option to buy him outright this summer.
However, Barcelona president Joan Laporta has a plan to sign the player, who has expressed his desire to play for Barcelona. Of course, that could change as Tottenham prepare to enter the race.
Tottenham have done well in the recent transfer window
Signing Pape Sarr, Ivan Perisic, Yves Bissouma, Hicharisson, Destiny Udogie, Pedro Foro, James Maddison, Guglielmo Vicario, Dejan Kulicepski, Micky van der Vaan, Brennan Johnsson, and Manor Solomon, among others.
This winter transfer window, Tottenham made a splash with the signings of Timo Werner, Radu Drogusin, and Lucas Verbal. This has led many pundits to re-evaluate Spurs’ transfer market.
Felix usually plays as a left winger, but he can also play in the center of the field as a striker or second striker. If Felix were to join Tottenham, he could overlap with Son Heung-min (32, Tottenham).
Tottenham have recently renewed their interest in collecting wingers. While Son was away at the Asian Cup, Werner took over the left wing spot that Son used to play. With Werner on loan, Felix could be his backup next season.
In Ange Postecoglou’s system, 메이저사이트 Son is an integral part of the team. However, with some pundits calling for the club to prepare for the future, it’s clear that Tottenham are concerned. The departure of Harry Kane (Bayern Munich) has also spurred them on.
Tottenham have also been linked with another Barcelona right winger in recent days, Hafinha. The player is a target for Liverpool, who are looking for a replacement for Mohamed Salah, but the Reds have already made a move with a €70 million bid.
