Atletico Madrid whiz Felix: Willock tipped me off about Chelsea ace Mount

Atletico Madrid whiz Joao Felix admits he's a fan of Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount.

Felix says he admires Mount ahead of their Champions League round 16 clash.

The Atletico Madrid forward will hope to have the edge when the two sides clash in their first leg on Tuesday night.

Felix told the Daily Mail: "I like the way he [Mount] plays, the way he likes to drag the ball, the way he touches the ball.

"I played with Chris Willock in Benfica three or four years ago and he told me that Chelsea has a guy that he sees who is similar to me and he told me it was Mason Mount.

"A few years later he appeared in Chelsea and I like the way he plays."

Chris Willock, formerly of Arsenal, is now playing with QPR.
