Felix wanted by Chelsea

Chelsea are reportedly weighing up an approach for Atletico Madrid star Joao Felix during the January transfer window.

The west London giants have experienced a difficult season in the Premier League and are currently eighth on the table.

They are already eight points behind the Champions League spots and have much work to do to finish in the top four.

Hence, they must reinvest on their attack in January and Sport claim that Felix is one of the top names on their wishlist.

The Portuguese has fallen out-of-favour under manager Diego Simeone at Atletico and has been a regular substitute.

He is desperate to move on from the club this winter and it remains to be seen whether the Blues can land his services.

Atletico will want close to £80 million for the former Benfica man, but Chelsea may propose an initial loan transfer.

Felix has also been linked with Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain. The former could also move for him in January.
