Arsenal are reportedly in advanced talks to sign Joao Felix in the January transfer window. Atletico Madrid are also open to selling the Portuguese forward.

The forward is also open to a potential move to the Gunners in the Premier League. Hence, there is a willingness from all parties to do a possible deal in January.

ARSENAL AND JOAO FELIX TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY

According to reports, Arsenal are in advanced conversation with Joao Felix over a January transfer move. The forward is also determined to leave Atletico Madrid. It is because Felix and Diego Simeone are not on talking terms. Hence, the La Liga giants are open to selling him in the January transfer window. Therefore, the agent of Felix, Jorge Mendes has offered him to many of the top European clubs. One of the clubs is the Gunners in the Premier League.

However, the price tag of the players is going to be one of the problems. Atletico Madrid are asking over 100 million for the forward. Hence, Arsenal will have to decide between Joao Felix and Mykhaylo Mudryk. The report also claims that the Gunners will not be able to sign both of the players in the January transfer window. Hence, decisions will have to be made in the January transfer window. However, there is one advantage for Arsenal and other interested Premier League teams.

THE PORTUGUESE FORWARD PREFERS A MOVE TO THE PREMIER LEAGUE

A number of reports claim that Joao Felix prefers a move to the Premier League. The reports also claim that PSG were showing interest in the forward. However, Felix does not have any intentions to go the Ligue 1 side. This is because the team has Kylian Mbappe, Lionel Messi, and Neymar in their attacking department. Hence, Joao Felix does not want to sit on the bench for most of the matches. He wants regular game time and wants to make a positive difference for his potential new club.

Hence, PSG are currently a straight no for Joao Felix. Barcelona and Real Madrid are also options for the forward. However, there is very less chance of Atletico Madrid selling their player to one of the league rivals. Therefore, Premier League teams remain the only option. At the moment, Tottenham, Arsenal, Manchester United, and Chelsea are the options that match his ambition of continuing to play in the top competition. Therefore, Mikel Arteta will hope to convince Felix to join the Gunners.

It looks like at the moment Joao Felix prefers a move to the Premier League in the January transfer window. Arsenal also have the money and the ambition to convince Felix to join their project. However, the Gunners need to remember that if they sign Felix, they can not surely sign Mykhaylo Mudryk. This is because both players are likely to cost over 80 million each in January.
