Several Premier League teams, notably Arsenal and Chelsea, have been linked to a transfer of Joao Felix away from Atletico Madrid. In January, before the second half of the 2022/23 season, both Todd Boehly and Edu will be aiming to strengthen the depth of their respective attacks.
If Felix does quit the club, Atletico may prefer him to transfer to the Premier League as there is a larger possibility they may recuperate a cost similar to the £ 113 million paid to Benfica for his services in 2019.
Edu and Mikel Arteta seek to inquire about a variety of strikers in January for a potential Gabriel Jesus replacement after his knee injury. So, the Gunners may make a move for Felix. With that in mind, let us have a look at all the current reports connecting him with the Gunners.
Will Joao Felix move to Arsenal?
Several teams have shown interest in signing Felix. @PatriciaCazon cited PSG and Manchester United as the two most enthusiastic suitors. With Felix potentially filling in for Jesus, Arsenal may add to “that list with force” and will be a contender.
Arsenal and Chelsea have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Joao Felix after the suggestion that one team had withdrawn out of the contest to capture his services.
A report from Mundo Deportivo suggests that Bayern Munich is no longer showing interest in signing Felix. This is good news for Chelsea and Arsenal.
In contrast to how much more fun he seemed to be having in Portugal’s free-flowing attack while Felix was away from his family responsibilities, his words suggest he is not enjoying his playing in Spain at the moment.
“The way of playing with Portugal and then at the club is different. When the conditions are favourable, things go better”, he told Sport Tv.
Atletico hasn’t been coy about Felix’s future. CEO Gil Marin recently gave an update on his situation. This will be music to the ears of a number of teams.
Marin said: “Joao Felix has top level but because of his relationship with Simeone and game time. We feel that makes sense to consider potential bids to sell him.”
Now, we have to wait and see where Joa Felix finally moves to. However, he will definitely be a very good signing for whatever club he decides to sign for. Only time will tell what the future holds for him!
