“That’s stupid money. Only if there is an option to buy should that be considered,” one fan wrote, while another wrote, “It’s stupid. Only Messi or Ronaldo less than 28-29 years old would be worth that for six months.
“Absolutely not for this money,” claims another advocate, “that’s just absurd.”
Some Arsenal fans believe the fee would be justified if Felix helps bring the title to the Emirates Stadium.

“21M is way too expensive but if you tell me 21M can buy us a PL trophy I will pay the money,” one claimed, with another adding: “Call me crazy but if it’s us brings the title, then break the bank.’
“If he’s helping us win the title by providing us with invaluable depth and maybe 8-10 goal contributions, 21M for a 6 month period doesn’t seem too bad,” said another Reddit user. “Of course, the less money we spend on this transfer, the better it is.”

Felix has shown brilliant flashes during his time at Atletico Madrid but has only scored 30 goals during his time at the club.
