The Reds, Juventus and Inter Milan are the three leading protagonists to sign the talented 21-year-old on a temporary basis when the winner market opens.

READ LIVERPOOL VERDICT
Signing a player of Felix’s quality on loan would be a surprising but sensational piece of business from the Anfield club.
Predominantly operating as a false nine in a well blessed Atletico squad, Felix could be the ideal long-term replacement for Roberto Firmino.
Valued at £72million and under contract until 2026 (Transfermarkt), landing the star on a permanent basis would prove an expensive outlay.
Whether the Spanish club would be willing to offer one of their brightest young talents directly to a UEFA Champions League rival remains to be seen.
