Arsenal took an advantageous position in the match for Joao Felix (23, Atletico).
Arsenal welcomed the 2022 International Football Federation (FIFA) Qatar World Cup break as No. 1 in the English Premier League (EPL). Arsenal boasted a stable performance and accumulated points one by one, taking the lead with a record of 12 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss (37 points).
However, news of an injury came through at the World Cup. Key striker Gabriel Jesus suffered a knee injury and underwent surgery. Recovery takes about three months. Jejus wore an Arsenal uniform this summer. Manager Mikel Arteta reached out to Jejus, who lacked opportunities at Man City.
Coach Arteta believed in the ability of Jejus, which he confirmed while coaching Man City, and Jejus also performed outstandingly. Jejus led the attack with organic movement and linked play from the front. Although his scoring has decreased recently, he scored 5 goals and 5 assists in the league.
As the key striker left, Arsenal looked for a replacement and watched Felice’s situation. Felix wore the Atletico Madrid (ATM) uniform for a huge transfer fee of 120 million euros (about 170 billion won) in the 2019-20 season. However, recently, he has been experiencing a sluggish performance, and rumors of a feud with manager Diego Simeone were also reported. 토토
While several teams are considering signing Felix, Arsenal are more aggressive. On the 13th (Korean time), Spain’s Marca said, “Arsenal is leading the race to sign Felix. Aston Villa and Newcastle also want Felix, but Arsenal have an advantage.”
Arsenal are trying to fill the void left by striker Jejus with Felix. Also, Felix can play left and right wing forward. Jejus can also play from the side, so if Jejus returns from injury, Arsenal’s offensive options can increase further.
