Chelsea edging completing loan deal for Joao Felix from Atletico Madrid according to Spanish sources.
Chelsea are in negotiations to loan Joao Felix from Atletico Madrid until the end of the current campaign.
The Blues want to snap up the Portuguese forward by beating off competition from Manchester United and Arsenal.
According to the Telegraph, Chelsea has moved up in line to sign the 23-year-old. Armando Broja is out for the season, therefore Graham Potter’s team is looking to bring in a temporary substitute.
Felix is seen as the ideal short-term replacement and eventually replaces Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Atletico are open to the departure of Felix next month after the Portuguese fell down the pecking order under manager Diego Simeone.
Felix has three goals and as many assists in 12 league games for Atletico this season.
