Who will replace João Félix at Atlético Madrid?

Memphis Depay is one of the players being linked with replacing João Félix at Atlético Madrid, according to Relevo, but the La Liga outfit have other alternatives to replace the Portuguese forward.

João Félix will join Chelsea on a loan deal until the end of the season, and Brazilian forward Matheus Cunha left Atlético for Wolves with a mandatory option to buy.

Relevo has had access to the list of forwards that Los Colchoneros are considering in attack between now and the end of the season.

In addition to Depay, the list includes five more strikers: Borja Iglesias (29, Real Betis), Chimy Ávila (28, Osasuna), Lucas Boyé (26, Elche), André Silva (27, RB Leipzig) and Vitinha (22, Sporting Braga).

The signing of Iglesias appears to be the most difficult because of his expensive buy-out clause and what Betis are demanding in exchange for his signature.

The report adds that Atlético are looking for a loan deal or a low-cost option for their front line.
