Arsenal put “Ronaldo second” in the sights, 350 million release clause

23 Feb 2022 | 06:17 | Football

 The London Gunners in the plan to recruit the striker brought the star considered to be Ronaldo’s “inheritance” in the sights.

Joao Felix’s Progress

In the January transfer window, Arsenal parted ways with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. They tried to find a replacement striker but failed. Number one target Dusan Vlahovic “ignored” the Gunner’s offer and chose to join Juventus with a £68 million contract.

The task of recruiting strikers becomes even more urgent next summer, when Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah’s contracts expire and will leave on a free transfer. Coach Mikel Arteta needs a young, classy striker to serve his conquest plan in the future.

According to Metro, the Emirates Stadium team has put Atletico Madrid’s Joao Felix in the spotlight . “Ronaldo II” is still struggling to live up to expectations, since joining Los Rojiblancos in 2019 for £113 million.

 Arsenal want to sign Joao Felix.

According to El Chiringuito, Diego Simeone is open to letting Felix leave Atletico this summer, if the club can sign Valencia’s Goncalo Guedes as a replacement. However, Arsenal will likely have difficulty convincing the La Liga champions to cede a contract that cost them £113 million.

Felix still has more than four years left on his current contract with Atletico and has a €350m (£291m) release clause. Since the beginning of the season, the Portuguese striker has had 4 goals and 4 assists in all competitions.
