Chelsea require the finalizing of Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix more than their competitors Manchester United and Arsenal, according to previous Blues striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.
The Portugal global might be on the relocation this January after having a hard time at Atletico under Diego Simeone, with Ben Jacobs just recently composing specifically for CaughtOffside that his cost might boil down towards completion of the winter season, with Chelsea, Man Utd and Arsenal not presently seeing him as great worth for cash.
Felix looked a genuine wonderkid throughout his days at previous club Benfica, however it’s now unclear what his future holds, though Hasselbaink feels he might be a useful addition to Graham Potter’s having a hard time Chelsea team.
The west London giants probably require upgrades on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Raheem Sterling, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic, so Felix would undoubtedly have a function to dip into the club.
Meanwhile, Hasselbaink argues that Man Utd and Arsenal rather plainly both require more out-and-out strikers to come in.
“Arsenal don’t need Joao Felix, they need a different kind of profile,” Hasselbaink informed Betway, as priced estimate by the Metro.
“Man United need an out-and-out striker, they have enough wingers and Chelsea are more in need but it depends which position they see him playing in.
“Chelsea need to do business across the whole front three and they need also do business in midfield so Joao Felix would suit Chelsea most.”
