Barcelona scouts were apparently pretty impressed with Benfica’s Joao Felix’s hat-trick in this week’s Europa League match against Eintracht Frankfurt, according to Sport.

The striker was on fire during the game netting three goals and showing off to scouts from Barcelona and other top tier clubs.

The 19-year-old has been on the Barcelona radar for some time and this only increases his popularity.

Manchester United, Liverpool, Borussia Dortmund and PSG are some of the other big names that have been linked with Felix. The race to grab him sooner rather than later will be on this summer.

Felix’s current deal ends in 2023 so Benfica will likely look to get a deal done in the coming months to avoid letting this drag on much longer.
