Joao Felix Declares Himself a Huge Fan of 22-Year-Old Linked with Chelsea Transfer
Chelsea loanee Joao Felix has declared his admiration for Napoli winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.
He told ‘The Residency’ that he admires the Georgian’s abilities, despite the Blues’ interest in signing him.
Kvaratskhelia has had a great breakout season in Serie A, his first season in a major league.
His abilities have been obvious, and the numbers back it up. In 32 league games this season, he has 12 goals and 10 assists.
He has forged an impressive partnership with fellow forward Victor Osimhen, who has ties to some of Europe’s top clubs.
Chelsea have undoubtedly shown the most interest in the striker, as their goal-scoring difficulties have hit an all-time low this season.

Felix, on the other hand, has lauded the 22-year-old as speculation over his personal future grows.
“Top player!” he exclaimed. “I admire your abilities.”
Since joining on loan in January, the Portugal international has undoubtedly divided opinion at Stamford Bridge.
This up and down period could have been predicted following his debut, in which he shined until being sent off early in the second half.
According to reports, there are numerous club executives who hope he will be retained for next season, whether through a permanent agreement or another loan.
This has not been welcomed with much fanfare, with supporters questioning whether his production warrants keeping him for next year over someone like Mason Mount, who is expected to leave this summer.
