Joao Felix continues to be strongly linked with a Premier League move in January after his relationship with Atletico boss Diego Simeone appeared to sour. The 23-year-old has caught the attention of Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United, with all three clubs far more interested in a loan than a permanent deal.
Although Felix was on the scoresheet for Atletico against Elche, a potentially huge hint has been dropped on his transfer future after Atletico’s squad reveal for their Copa del Rey clash against Real Oviedo on Wednesday showed no sign of Felix

Tielemans January deal
Arsenal’s interest in Youri Tielemans has cooled, football.london understands. The Gunners were heavily linked to the Belgian international over the summer amid reports that his agent had held talks with Edu.
However, Arsenal opted not to make a move for Tielemans and it’s understood that a move for him at the time was not close to completion. There have been some suggestions that Mikel Arteta’s side could go back in for the 25-year-old in the January transfer window, but that seems unlikely as things stand.
Tielemans has just six months remaining on his deal with Leicester City and could be available for a reduced price in this window, but Arsenal are not thought to be keen at this moment in time. The Belgian is understood to have several suitors across Europe, including teams in Spain, while Chelsea have also reportedly shown interest.
