Chelsea are prepared to swap two players to sign Atletico Madrid star Joao Felix this summer, Evening Standard claim.
The Blues signed the Portuguese star on loan in January and he has hardly impressed with just three goals in all competitions.
Despite this, the owners want to land him on a permanent basis and it is claimed that the Blues could propose an exchange deal.
The west Londoners are prepared to include Marc Cucurella and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as makeweights to sign Felix.
Felix is currently valued at €100 million by Diego Simeone‘s side and the Blues hope to reduce the price by a significant margin.
Felix has already opened the door for a permanent switch to London and personal terms should be a mere formality this summer.
If Atletico accept the proposal, it could benefit both clubs. A left-back and a striker are among the priorities for the La Liga giants.
Manchester United and Arsenal were also keen on landing Felix in January but they have now turned their attention elsewhere.
