Arsenal targets expensive La Liga attacker for their rebuild

Arsenal has been linked with a move for Joao Felix as they continue their search for new attackers.

The Portuguese star is under contract at Atletico Madrid until 2026, but they might sell him earlier.

He was one of the top young players in the world when he played for Benfica.

That is one reason the Madrid side paid £114m for his signature in 2019.

However, he has failed to live up to the expectations and they are now prepared to cut their losses.

Their desire to sell him coincides with Arsenal looking to bolster their squad with new attackers.

The journalist, Eduardo Inda, reveals the Gunners are interested in making a move for him.

He said via Sport Witness: “Joao Félix is a very good player. Arsenal wants him.

“Simeone, if he continues, wants to bring in Guedes. His objective is to change Joao Félix for Guedes.

“The problem Atletico have is that he cost €120m, and getting him back is something that can only be done if he is sold to the Premier League.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Felix has been an exciting player to watch even though he has not scored enough goals.

He plays at an Atleti side that is notoriously defensive and that could limit his impact.

At Arsenal, he would get more freedom to be nearer to the opponents’ goal and that could improve his goal stats.

  1. Seems like a gifted player who never ever couldve justified his price tag, kinda like what happened with Pepe. Not the players fault.

    If Atletico wants to sell him, they have to suck it up and face the fact that they wont get even half what they paid for him.

  2. Renato killing it with killer moves and passes but his team mates including david are’nt good enough to crown his efforts.

  3. well this must be a joke.
    arsenal already have too much young CF prospect and definitely doesn’t need another one unless they are backed by some saudi milionaire to replace one of eddie, balogun or martinelli with joao felix

    What is happening is martinelli likely to be arsenal 2nd CF with balogun 3rd in order assuming laca dan eddie leaving as it seems. what arsenal likely to do is finding a star CF as starter who has lots of experience to help the young player grow.

  4. Sanchez played really well against Chelsea and if his teammates had taken some of the chances he created, the result would have been different. I hope MA and Edu were watching and they sign him in the summer. As for Felix, not only the price tag is very high but also the player is very temperamental and aggressive, so Arsenal must be careful. Rather go in for Jonathan David/DCL/Origi/Luka Jovic.
