Arsenal fans have reacted as Portugal superstar Joao Felix scored a crucial goal to put his nation 2-1 up against Ghana.

Earlier this year football.london reported that the Gunners were interested in signing the Portugal international, with Mikel Arteta eager to bolster his frontline. Arsenal went on to sign Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City instead but the 23-year-old continues to be linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium.

Joe Cole and Graeme Souness both believe more attack-minded teams would suit Felix’s qualities much more than Atletico Madrid. The Portugal international signed for Atletico at just 18 years old as one of the hottest talents in Europe, but has struggled to kick on as well as many expected since joining Diego Simeone’s side.

Cristiano Ronaldo put Portugal 1-0 ahead from the penalty spot before Andre Ayew equalised with a tap-in from close range. Felix burst through on goal after being unleashed by a brilliant pass from Bruno Fernandes, as the talented forward guided the ball into the far corner with ease.

football.london takes a look at how Gunners fans have reacted to Felix’s strike with many urging the 23-year-old to sign for Mikel Arteta’s side. @JaydenJoshua_21 tweeted: “Joao Felix at Arsenal would be unreal.”

Meanwhile, @rakhveer04 posted: “JOAO FELIX COME TO ARSENAL *Portugal flag emoji* *Fire emoji*”

@mktney referred to Mykhaylo Mudryk who had been linked with a transfer to the Gunners, but feels Felix would be a better deal. The user tweeted: “If Arsenal have £100m to spend on a player then it should be Joao Felix not Mudryk. Felix is so good in tight spaces and all round the better player.”

Felix was substituted with just minutes remaining in the match after Chelsea transfer target Rafael Leao extended Portugal’s lead to 3-1.
