Barcelona star Joao Felix is the latest Tottenham Hotspur transfer target
Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing an unexpected swoop for Joao Felix from Barcelona (On loan from Atletico Madrid), per Spanish media outlet Fichajes. The Portuguese international is loaned with the Catalans from parent club Atletico Madrid. The 24-year-old’s immediate future is unsure according to the Spanish media.
Tottenham did attempt to sign the forward in the summer of 2023 but the move didn’t get through. The Lilywhites rather pursued James Maddison, which was quite a bargain. Postecoglou is desperate to strengthen his attacking unit further.

A rather subdued January transfer window will urge the North London outfits to go big in the summer. Felix is one of the many on Ange’s radar. How likely it will be to land him is still being determined as of now.
Joao Felix — A far-fetched dream, perhaps?
The 24-year-old has more reasons not to join Tottenham than to join them. To begin with, Joao has plied his cards in the Premier League with Chelsea. The football world remembers how it turned out to be.
The former SL Benfica man might also see Tottenham as a step down in his career arriving from Barcelona. The winger seems happy with the Blaugranas. Xavi’s departure will put his position in question mark even further.
As it is, Joao Felix already faces instability at the hands of his current boss. Xavi’s departure could mean Felix’s career could go either way. The next Barca manager might as well promote the Portugal forward considering the experience within the ranks.
