The Reds are named as one of four Premier League suitors, alongside Newcastle United, Arsenal and arch-rivals Manchester United.
Newcastle’s interest appears to be the most advanced, with the report claiming that they have already made an approach. Felix is open to leaving the Spanish capital, but isn’t particularly keen on moving to St James’ Park as the Magpies battle to stay in the top flight.
A brief lowdown on Felix
Felix ranks as one of the five biggest signings in the history of football, having joined Atletico from Benfica for a fee of €127.2m (£108.5m) in 2019.
However, the 22-year-old has only scored 14 goals and provided seven assists in the space of nearly two-and-a-half seasons with Diego Simeone’s side (via WhoScored).
Fan feed LFC Transfer Room relayed the link, and here’s what some Liverpool supporters made of it. Despite his less than stellar goal tally in the Spanish capital, many Kopites still reacted with enthusiasm to the rumour. One drew comparisons with Fernando Torres, who thrived at Anfield after moving from Atletico in the 2000s.
These Liverpool fans go wild over Felix links
“Ah how I would love this player. He is one big talent that needs nurturing to make him a world star. Problem is Atletico played over the odds for him. So they will want big money for him.”
“Just add this guy and Raphinha to this squad and I’m satisfied”
“Perfect Bobby Replacement.”
“MAKE IT HAPPEN @LFC”
“The second coming of Torres for Liverpool”
“I’ll gladly have him. As Firmino is declining, he’s a perfect replacement.”
