Arsenal is leading the race for wantaway La Liga striker

Arsenal has been named as the Premier League club leading the race for Atletico Madrid star Joao Felix as the Gunners look to continue bolstering their squad.

Mikel Arteta’s side has topped the Premier League table for much of this season, which is a clear sign of improvement on their previous campaigns and they want to remain among the Champions League campaigners from England.

To achieve this, they must constantly improve their squad and have been looking to achieve that for some time now.

Reports have linked several players with a move to the Emirates, but Felix could be the first to join them.

A report on Marca says he is on the radar of several EPL sides as he looks to leave his current club Atletico Madrid, but Arsenal is currently the favourite to land him.

His agent wants him to move to Aston Villa instead, but the Portugal star could opt to join Arteta’s revolution at the Emirates.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Felix has been one of the finest attackers in Europe over the last few seasons, but he is struggling at Atletico Madrid at the moment.

Arsenal could be the perfect club for him as Arteta has built a reputation for reviving the careers of players who are struggling at their former sides.

  1. Nothing but media trying to gain some views. He was signed for over 100m. They wont sell cheap.
    Arsenal has been very clear in their strategy and their priority is add depth. I don’t see A.Madrid selling him for 30-35m. And I don’t see Arsenal splurging 60-70m on 1 player when they can buy 2 good players in same money and address issue of depth. Arsenal will spend +60m on single player only if they see a great striker/goal scorer who fits the arsenal profile. Or after we have signed 3-4 quality players and added depth.
    Felix transfer to us is all smoke without fire.

    1. That’s my view too.

      Although his transfermarkt value has falleen to 50m euros now, there’s recent bad blood between Arsenal and Atletico after the Partey transfer so they may not do business with us at all.

      Presumably AM set his release clause at a reported £300m to prevent a repeat of the TP situation.

  2. This is the real deal over Mudryk but can Arsenal spend that kind of money? This guy is simply phenomenal and can fit straight into Arteta’s play style

  3. The gaffer should make a bold bid again on all the players he tried to sign last summer at opening of the January transfer window..

    This may cause a few ranting from fans, but he now has the capital to attempt it.

    Failure to acquire any then we could move on to other favored targets, but both Barcelona and the old lady resolve should be firmly tested.

    It would be not only seen as an ambitious assault but a statement that we arrive.

    1. So “he now has the capital to attempt it” eh?”” Oh yeah? What private knowledge do YOU claim that is invisible to the rest of us?
      Are you even numerate ?
      And can you even add up basic figures?
      Have you any IDEA of the countless millions you are daftly claiming Kroenke will oblige our management team with?

      Seems the honest answer to all those questions is NO.

      1. When I said Capital I do not mean monetary. value.
        As we do not know the size of the war chest yet.
        When I said Capital I meant APPROVAL from fans like me.

        Example, George Bush has the CAPITAL to attack Iraq, meaning he has the approval from Congress and the support of the American people to attack a sovereign state.

        Below are the three players that got away last summer to Barcelona and the old lady respectively.

        Raphinha £55 m
        Vlohovic under £70 m
        Locatelli approximately £40 m

        That’s a reasonable war chest for me to the tune of £165 m

        This is not countless millions, maybe this was what the gaffer pleading for in the big apple recently more money.

        1. Gunsmoke some lack minimal amount of knowledge to be able to understand this.

          Maybe poor English skills are to blame or a failed education setup.

          Thank you for providing those with the knowledge to improve themselves.

          That said, I can’t see us signing him. Maybe we will get a backup to Nkhetia though. He is not paid 100k pw to not be used.

          1. Savenger Eddie is a goal poacher that should be able to hold his own, am not sure what’s happening with him though, he will be given solid opportunity from boxing day over atleast a half dozen games , if he manages to get a brace on Boxing day he could very well kick on.

            But even before Jesus injury, have always thought we needed someone in the Ivan Toney , Vlohovic or Osimhen mould, a flat track attack bully

            So I know mentioning Vlohovic, it might be a bit of pushing the envelope.

  4. Te EPL is too physical for a CF like Jao felix, for him to thrive , it would mean a Saka and Martineli would have to attract more defenders to allow felix more space,
    I would prefer a more athletic Mudryk and a cheaper Danilo, if possible we could add Zaha as cover for Gabriel Jesus.
    Just my thoughts.

  5. I think Ivan toney would be the best buy a proven epl striker very young too with alot of quality to last for a longtime

  6. Lots of Speculation doing the rounds over Felix and Mudryk hard to know which one is actually the priority. Ferran Torres is another lurking in the background.

    According to the Athletic we are no longer after Danilo as Arteta wants someone who can come straight in and hit the ground running. We should throw our hat in the ring for Amrabat.
