Fichajes claims Liverpool have identified Felix as a target next summer after his struggles at Atleti this term.

The Portugal international, 21, has featured just three times for the LaLiga champions.

And despite paying around £113m for his services from Benfica two years, Atleti are open to offers.

It’s claimed the Spanish giants would only look to recoup £68m, which they can put towards re-signing Antoine Griezmann permanently from Barcelona.

Felix would provide Jurgen Klopp with yet another top option for his attack.

The forward can play either as a central striker or a winger.

The Egyptian, 29, has been in red-hot form this season with nine goals in as many games.
