What type of player is he, and is he more a central midfielder or attacking one?
Just found your post
Haha! Lately he's been playing more as a forward than as midfielder actually, he has a big tall striker alongside him in Seferovic who's really mediocre to be honest, but João Félix despite his age makes Seferovic look like a much better player. I don't watch every Benfica match so I'm no expert, but he seems to be intelligent enough to play in a variety of attacking positions, and despite not being that tall he's even scored a couple of headers in his short career so far. What I find most impressive for someone so young is the way he sees the game and knows how to keep it simple sometimes, differently to some kids who try too hard.
So he scored once .
Seriously though, it really helps having someone who watches him play, personally I’ve never heard of him until this, expect that’s the same with a lot of people so it’s good getting your insight on the player. If he’s as good as you say he is, then hopefully we don’t pass him by.
What’s his work rate like? Aside from having potential, does he look like he’d have the work rate that is expected from Klopp?
Haha yeah but the goal that was ruled out was probably a better finish from outside the box which was quite impressive, but ended up being ruled out due to a foul in the play leading up to it.
He's only been a starter for a short period but every time I watch him he looks seriously impressive. As for his work-rate, it seems good enough for me but the Portuguese league isn't exactly the most demanding of leagues for a Benfica player. I think he's intelligent enough to adapt though and work hard.
On Wednesday I'll be at the Estádio da Luz to watch Benfica vs Sporting (they play again but this time for the Cup), hopefully he'll start and I'll get to have a better look at his movement in the stadium
