Gunner ready to go all-in on Felix
The Mirror claims that while United are still keen to sign Felix on loan, Arsenal are ready to go one step further.
The North London side will also be happy to complete the first temporary switchover. But they are also ready to agree a £80m package, including a £9.5m loan fee and a £70m summer switch, to make his transfer permanent.
Felix was a key member of the Atlético squad that won the La Liga title in 2020-21. This season, however, he has mostly warmed the bench as his relationship with Simeone soured.

Loris spent 10 years at the club, helping France to a World Cup runner-up finish. But there is a growing sense that his best days are behind him, and the 36-year-old often struggles with the rations modern goalkeepers are familiar with.
