Barcelona are interested in signing Joao Felix from La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid in the summer transfer window, according to The digital goal. It has been reported by the Spanish news broadcast that Barcelona have identified the 21-year-old striker as an alternative to Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar.
