This is the Latest TOTTENHAM news with price of star player increase after heavy link from TOTTENHAM to price away player.
Arsenal and Tottenham, two competing clubs in north London, are rumored to be interested in signing Joao Felix, who has been extensively linked with a move to the Premier League once more.
As a result of reports that Diego Simeone has changed his mind about the striker, Arsenal and Tottenham have been informed of the potential cost of luring Joao Felix away from Atletico Madrid this summer.
After losing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette, football.london reported in March that the Gunners were interested in acquiring the Portugal international.
Mikel Arteta was looking to strengthen his front line. The manager of Atletico Madrid has since had a change of heart, but at the time, the Spanish giants believed Felix was invincible.

According to The Express, Atletico may be open to including Tottenham striker Giovani Lo Celso, who had a standout season as a Villarreal loanee last year, in any deal including Felix.
Simeone no longer views Felix as “non-transferable,” according to BarcaTimes, and the striker’s agency is reportedly in touch with a number of teams, including Paris Saint-Germain.
The 22-year-old stated that his player was “happy” at the Metropolitano Stadium and essential to Atletico’s future endeavors in a statement made in March amid rumors of a transfer to Arsenal.
Says Simone “The team’s demands are met by Joao Felix. We can work with the forwards in a certain way. He’s doing fantastically, is content and eager, and it’s crucial from a personal perspective so that he may eventually go to the collective, which is what matters.”
But, according to CIES Football Observatory, if Arsenal or Tottenham want to win the battle for Felix this summer, they must be ready to offer about £103.7 million.
Before an injury curtailed his season early in April, the striker had his greatest season with Atletico this past year, recording eight goals and four assists in 24 La Liga games.
Felix, whose deal in the Spanish capital expires in 2026, was voted the club’s player of the season in May, but he has failed to live up to the high expectations placed on him since his eye-watering £114 million transfer from Benfica in 2019. Nevertheless, he has been able to attract a lot of attention from the top teams in Europe.
Arteta is allegedly still keen in acquiring Felix despite the north London partnership reportedly facing competition from PSG, who have an advantage over the Gunners in the Champions League qualification process.
Additionally, the Spaniard’s anticipated renovation, which is comparable to the £150 million summer expenditure from last year, may prove to be a potent selling point.
In response to the question of whether he anticipates a busy transfer window in terms of player recruiting, he responded: “Yes, I am anticipating.
I don’t believe [whether competition you qualify for] makes much of a difference or alters much, as I believe both competitions [the Champions League and Europa League] demand a much larger squad since the number of games you play in each is much higher.
“If you ask me what I want, I’d say I’d want 22 outfield players and three goalkeepers, provided you have the financial means to do so and we don’t need to make the same changes to the roster that we have. There are many things that have to be done before you can achieve the things you see on the field.
