Joao Felix would reportedly be keen to join Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea in the summer transfer window.
According to journalist Ben Jacobs in the Twitter sectionAtletico Madrid striker Joao Felix would like to join Chelsea this week.
Felix, who can play as a striker, winger or attacking midfielder, spent the second half of last season at Chelsea on loan from Atlético Chelsea.
While on loan at Chelsea, Felix made 16 Premier League appearances, scoring four goals.
Joao Felix would love a Chelsea transfer
Jacobs has said there is interest in the £250,000-a-week (The sun) Portugal international from Barcelona.
The reporter added that while Felix would love to return to Chelsea, head coach Mauricio Pochettino doesn’t want the 23-year-old at Stamford Bridge.
Pochettino was appointed Chelsea manager in the summer of 2023.
According to the report, Argentina coach doesn’t want Felix in his squad for this season.
Jacobs said as passed by TCC: “Felix would be very interested in a Chelsea approach, especially if Barcelona fail, but nothing is active at the moment and it would have to turn around Mauricio Pochettino for that to change.”
We don’t think Chelsea should try to win Felix back.
While the striker hasn’t had a particularly bad time at Chelsea, he hasn’t exactly been a huge success either.
And Felix is not a “natural striker”.
That’s what Chelsea need at the moment.
The former Premier League and UEFA Champions League winner has enough strikers.
What Pochettino needs is a quality number 9 with more experience than Nicolas Jackson and Armando Broja.
In the meantime, London World have reported that Chelsea are interested in signing winger Jadon Sancho from Premier League rivals Manchester United this week.
