According to a recent report from Marca, Atletico Madrid are closing in on a deal to sign Lyon forward Moussa Dembele.
The belief is that Atletico have turned towards the Frenchman as a potential solution for the void they’ve been left now that Diego Costa’s exit from the cub has been officially confirmed. He went on his way last week and while there is enough speculation about where he’s going to go next, there hasn’t been a whole lot of talk about what Atletico are going to wind up doing.
They know that they need to do everything in their power to strengthen as they prepare for a gruelling La Liga title race between now and the end of the season, and bringing in someone like Dembele could massively help their chances.
There’s no guarantee it’ll be the silver bullet that they need, but it does create an interesting talking point.
