According to 90min, Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal and Graham Potter’s Chelsea have been offered the chance to sign Joao Felix from Atletico Madrid in the January transfer window..
According to the report, Manchester United, Juventus, Bayern Munich, and Paris Saint-Germain are all interested in signing the Portugal international.
Former La Liga champions Atletico Madrid paid £113 million for Felix in 2019 and want at least £100 million in transfer fees for the 23-year-old, who can play as a forward, winger, or attacking midfielder and was described as “very dangerous” in TribalFootball in August 2022 by then Villarreal head coach Unai Emery (now at Aston Villa). That fee, according to 90min, is ‘problematic.’
Arsenal are also interested in the youngster, as reported this week.
CAN ARSENAL OR CHELSEA LAND ATLETICO MADRID’S JOAO FELIX?
Chelsea, rather than Arsenal, are more likely to spend £100 million on a single player like Joao Felix in the middle of the season, in our opinion.
If Atletico Madrid demands a £100 million transfer fee for the Portuguese star, Arsenal is unlikely to pay that sum.
Chelsea are used to spending big money on players, even under new ownership, and the Blues are more likely than the Gunners to consider bringing in a 23-year-old for £100 million..
