Atletico Madrid want Immobile

With Diego Costa set to leave Atletico Madrid in the summer, reports in Spain suggest they could turn their attentions to Ciro Immobile.

The in-form Rojiblancos goalscorer has been heavily linked with a move away from the Vicente Calderon at the end of the season, with Chelsea set to table Costa’s release clause of €35m.

As such, El Confidencial believe that Diego Simeone will look to the Torino forward as a possible replacement for next term.

The 24-year-old’s 20 League goals this season have not gone unnoticed in the Spanish capital, with the current Liga leaders set to offer a ‘substantial’ amount to land their man.

The paper fails to give an actual figure, but with the Costa money and a Champions League windfall, there shouldn’t a problem with financing the deal.

The problem however, could arise from Immobile’s contract situation, as he is currently co-owned by Juventus and Il Toro.

Borussia Dortmund are also interested, as confirmed by his agent.
