Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix has joined Chelsea on loan for the rest of the season, the Premier League club announced on Wednesday, January 11.

 

The 23-year-old striker will bolster the attacking options for manager Graham Potter, whose squad is currently hard-hit by injuries and languishing in 10th spot in the table.

 

Chelsea in a statement described the Portugal international as a “skilful and stylish attacker” who is best in a fluid forward role.

“From Atletico de Madrid we wish Joao Felix every success in this new professional stage,” the club said.
