Player to watch – Joao Felix

Joao Felix has dropped out of the Barcelona side in recent weeks and he really needs to find some form again if he’s to convince the club to purchase his services in the summer on a permanent basis.

Felix is desperate for that to happen but he has only registered 3 goals and 2 assists in La Liga this term.
