Joao Felix spotted wearing a West Ham shirt in pre-season training, it's got fans talking

Joao Felix spent last season on loan at Chelsea in the Premier League

Joao Felix has got fans talking after he was spotted training whilst wearing a West Ham United shirt.

The 23-year-old spent the second half of the 22/23 season on loan at Chelsea from Atletico Madrid.

However, the Portuguese failed to impress as he produced a string of disappointing performances.

In 16 Premier League appearances, Felix only managed four goals and did not manage to register a single assist.

Recently, the forward was filmed doing some pre-season training whilst wearing a West Ham shirt with Algerian star Said Benrahma’s name on the back. You can watch the footage below.

This has got Hammers fans talking on social media.

One said: “He would actually thrive here playing with Benrahma and Lucas Paqueta in my opinion.”

Another tweeted: “Sold a player to Arsenal and now they think they have the facilities!”

A third fan added: “I sometimes wear a Metallica shirt. That doesn’t mean they’re gonna ask me to replace Lars.”

Someone else wrote: “It’s never happening but he suits that West Ham shirt, Rice money have to go somewhere?”

Whilst a fifth commented: “Come on lads, don’t get too excited. This is never happening in a million years!”

Back in May, Atletico president Enrique Cerezo confirmed that Chelsea will not be signing Felix on a permanent deal.

He told Spanish media: “Yesterday we had the news that the new Chelsea manager [Pochettino] does not [want] João Félix.

“We've known for less than 24 hours. He'll come back here and we'll see. We don't have anything planned.”


According to transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano, the La Liga side are looking to part ways with Felix in the summer transfer window, despite spending £114 million to bring him to Madrid back in 2019.

Chelsea meanwhile are looking to add to their squad ahead of the 23/24 campaign.

Having parted ways with the likes of Edouard Mendy, N’Golo Kante, Kalidou Koulibaly, Kai Havertz and Mason Mount, Chelsea have been linked with the likes of Moises Caicedo, Romeo Lavia and Rayan Cherki.
