Felix has made just seven La Liga starts for Atletico this season. But he was in the starting lineup for Sunday’s 1-0 home defeat to Barcelona.

However, the La Liga side are set to sell Felix, who has scored five goals and provided three assists in all competitions this season. Leaving on loan in January Due to the difficult relationship between him and manager Diego Simeone.

The 23-year-old joined Atletico from Benfica in a €126m (£111m) deal from Benfica in 2019.

Chelsea also need a right-back and a midfielder.’
Sky Sports Chief Correspondent Kaveh Solhekol:

“You have to take into account Felix’s wages. He earns over £250,000 a week. So Chelsea will have to cover his wages as well.

“Chelsea have been criticized because they spent a lot of money in the transfer market. But they have a strategy this month.

“What they want to sign is a wide player. I think it’s Felix. Ideally They need a right-back and a midfielder as well.

‘Felix’s agreement is valid for both parties.’
Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth:

“This deal should work for both parties. Chelsea will probably look into the summer where they can reevaluate and see what other options are available.

“For Atletico Madrid they paid almost £120m for Felix if they included the option now or sold him now. They won’t get anywhere near that money.”

“It’s possible they won’t get nearly that much money when they finally sell him. But if he goes to Chelsea and performs really well for six months, he could go back to Atletico with three years left on his contract and it could be his.”

“Arsenal wanted to sign him as well. and Manchester United are keeping an eye on him.

‘Felix can help. But next season should be the focus.’
Joe Shread, football correspondent for Sky Sports:

Owner Todd Bohly has shown he’s willing to go all out to improve Graham Potter’s side, and attacking is clearly something to deal with.

Finding a position behind the net is a serious problem. Chelsea are 12th for Premier League goals scored, while Raheem Sterling and Kai Havertz are the only players to score more than three goals in all competitions.

The need for more goalscorers in Potter’s squad is clear. But the lack of creative opportunities is a bigger problem.

Chelsea are 15th lowest in terms of goals expected in the Premier League. And outperforming the figure of 18.81, indicating that their forwards are not as underpowered as they seem.

Felix’s move to Atletico may not go as either side had hoped. But he is a player who could help solve Chelsea’s problems in the final if he plays in west London.

Despite starting only 7 games in La Liga this season But he still ranks in the top 12 of the Spanish top flight for goals per 90 minutes and assists per 90 minutes.

Felix is also a versatile striker who can play as a striker, number 10 or winger, something Potter would be drawn to. Due to the head coach’s habit of using various styles of play.

However, questions will be asked about the decision to sign Felix. If Chelsea do not negotiate an option to buy the Portugal international as part of his loan deal

Excluding another standout performance in the Champions League, the trophy has not been an issue for the Blues this season. It means that the second half of this season is likely to be about building on the 2023/24 season.

If Felix is not part of next season Whose team do they want him to be on?
