Liverpool may have been placed on red alert as Atletico Madrid superstar Joao Felix reportedly looks for a way out in the January transfer window.

The 22-year-old was indexed to the Reds in October and it would appear that the situation hasn’t yet resolved itself.

At the time the Anfield club were linked with making a loan swoop for a man signed for an eye-watering £113million from Benfica (BBC).

Now, according to Spanish outlet AS, as cited by Football Transfers on Twitter, Felix is hoping for a mid-season exit.

The report claims that agents of the 20-cap Portugal ace are ‘studying various alternatives’ to find a route out of Madrid.

In a bizarre twist of events, Liverpool could play a hand in eliminating Atletico from UEFA Champions League Group B tonight (December 7).

So far this season Felix has scored once and provided two assists in 12 appearances across all competitions for Diego Simeone’s side.

Valued at £62million and under contract at the Wanda Metropolitano until 2026 (Transfermarkt), unsurprisingly the report suggests that Atletico would nigh on want to recoup their expenditure on the forward.

Described as a player with ‘enormous quality’ by ex-teammate Jonas, Felix would be an outstanding addition to Klopp’s squad.

Primarily operating in a similar role to Roberto Firmino, the Portuguese star can also play on either side of a central frontman.

Named the Golden Boy in 2019 and possessing an array of attacking talents, this is one generational player who would be worth breaking the bank for.
