Atletico Madrid star Joao Felix has flown to London in a private jet to finalise his Chelsea transfer, his influencer girlfriend Margarida Corceiro has confirmed on Instagram.

Chelsea will pay a fee of £9m to sign the Portuguese star and an announcement is expected on Wednesday.

Chelsea have struggled to score goals and Graham Potter is hoping that adding Felix to the squad will boost Chelsea’s attack.

Felix, 23, has been inconsistent at Atletico this season. He has scored four goals and provided three assists in 14 LaLiga appearances.

In 2019 Felix joined Atletico from Benfica for £113million, which remains the fourth highest transfer fee in football history.
