‘Insane’ ‘Mental not to’ – These Liverpool fans want Reds to be all over £63m bargain transfer as La Liga giants prepared to sanction sale of forward

Posted by

With the entire first-choice forward line (barring Diogo Jota) on contracts set to expire in the summer of 2023, it’s considered somewhat likely that a forward signing in the near future for Liverpool will be actively considered.

It’s unsurprising then that the Reds continue to be linked with top names, with one Four Four Two report claiming that reported target Joao Felix could be released from Atletico Madrid for as little as £63m.

With it remaining unclear as to whether a bumper deal will be extended beyond Mo Salah and Sadio Mane to Bobby Firmino, it’s certainly possible that the Portuguese will be considered as the Brazilian’s potential successor should he be set to run down his contract.

The 30-year-old’s form will likely prompt similar questions with regard to his suitability for a contract extension, though with our traditional forward line’s future remaining up in the air, our recruitment team will likely have alternative options in mind.

At 22-years-old, Felix would represent a potentially smart piece of business at £63m, particularly given how suitably he fits within our recruitment team’s ideal age range.

It’s still a somewhat significant setback financially, of course, with it remaining unclear how capable we’ll be of affording major outlays on potential signings without any serious player sales.
