Where will new loan signing Joao Felix play for Chelsea?
Chelsea's search for an attacker who is actually capable of hitting the back of the net has become desperate. In their latest attempt to remedy their goalscoring woes, the Blues – backed by their free-spending new ownership – have turned to Atletico Madrid wantaway Joao Felix, another player who is far from prolific and does not have a fixed position.
An instant impact, then, is far from guaranteed.
Nevertheless, Chelsea are set to stump up a £10 million loan fee to sign the 23-year-old from Atleti, where he has flattered to deceive since a blockbuster €127m (£112m/$135m) transfer from Benfica in 2019.
The hope will be that the versatile Felix will be able to unlock Chelsea's other toiling attackers, rather than necessarily rattling in a load of goals himself.
