Chelsea are in advanced talks with Atletico Madrid to sign Joao Felix on loan, in what is expected to be the biggest deal of the January transfer window..
Chelsea reportedly agreed to a loan fee of around €11 million, beating out Premier League rivals Manchester United and Arsenal for the 23-year-old forward’s signature.
Felix cost Atletico Madrid a club record £111 million when he was signed from Benfica in 2019, and manager Graham Potter will be hoping the Portuguese can breathe new life into their attack after their recent struggles. The Blues are willing to pay Felix’s salary in full, which could amount to more than £250,000 per week in the second half of the season..
West Ham United are interested in Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri and could make a loan move for the 25-year-old Moroccan international, according to the Times.
Meanwhile, Manchester United is interested in Dutch international Wout Weghorst. The striker is currently on loan from Burnley to Besiktas until the end of the season, and the Turkish club has stated that they are willing to negotiate compensation for the loan cancellation if he secures another move this month. United have agreed the fundamentals of a loan agreement with Burnley, but the Clarets and Besiktas have yet to reach an agreement..
