Chelsea are unlikely to re-sign Atletico Madrid winger Joao Felix on a permanent basis unless the valuation is lowered.

The Portuguese joined the Blues on loan in January after they agreed to pay a loan fee of €11 million to the La Liga giants.

He has since struggled with just two goals scored from 15 outings but the Blues are still open to a permanent transfer.

As per AS, Blues owner Todd Boehly is willing to sign the 23-year-old, provided Atletico are willing to negotiate for him.

The London giants are unlikely to meet the €100m asking price and will want the price tag to be lowered for a mutual deal.

Meanwhile, it is reported that the Blues could also propose a player-plus-cash transfer for the Portuguese star this summer.

There are suggestions that Romelu Lukaku could be included as part of the move to land Felix on a permanent basis from Atletico.

Lukaku has been admired by Atletico boss Diego Simeone for some time.
