Arsenal target Joao Felix wants to reportedly join Paris Saint-Germain in the January transfer window. Hence, this is potentially a big blow for the Gunners in January.

They reportedly made him one of the priority targets after losing Gabriel Jesus to injury. However, it looks like the Portuguese forward wants to play with the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, and Lionel Messi.


According to reports, Joao Felix does not wish to join Arsenal in the January transfer window. The report also claims that the Gunners will not advance the deal anymore. They were one of the teams offered to sign the Portuguese forward in a January transfer. The Gunners were also showing interest in him. This was due to the injury of their star striker Gabriel Jesus. A number of reports also claimed that they were in advanced talks with Atletico Madrid to complete the deal.

However, it looks like it is all baseless transfer rumors. Wolves, Aston Villa, Manchester United, and Newcastle United also showed interest in signing him. However, he has made it clear that he does not want to join them. It looks like for now Arsenal will have to concentrate on the Mykhaylo Mudryk. However, they can target his Atletico Madrid teammate Matheus Cunha. The La Liga side are happy to sell both of the attacking players. This is because both of them do not fit the Diego Simeone system. Hence, Atletico Madrid are happy to sell them to cut their losses.


Transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio has claimed that Joao Felix wants to go to Paris Saint-Germain. He further said,

“Arsenal certainly not, because he wants to play for Paris Saint-Germain. Atlético Madrid just don’t want to lose him at all and they are asking 130/140 million euros for him! Paris Saint-Germain would be a logical choice if he does leave Atlético. “After all, there are not that many clubs that can afford to pay him and PSG are interested in young players for the future, so that they can plan for the potential departures of Mbappé or Neymar. Or so that they have a replacement when Messi’s contract expires.”

This is not surprising at all. It is because PSG are ambitious than Arsenal in terms of ambitions and good salary. Hence, it is clear that Joao Felix will earn good money. It will also help him regain his finishing boots. He has failed to score enough goals for the La Liga side. Hence, Ligue1 is the perfect league to score goals. He has shown it during the World Cup that can he assist and score goals. Hence, it is clear that he has created a market for himself in January.

Hence, it is going to be a very tough task for Arsenal to convince Joao Felix in January. The Gunners need to continue their brilliant form to have a chance at signing Joao Felix in January. They can also hope that they can finish in Champions League places if the Portuguese forward fails to get a move to Paris Saint-Germain in January.
