Atletico Madrid Currently at Cagliari
Atletico Madrid have been working to find a replacement for Diego Costa since the striker left the club at the end of December.
Lyon’s Moussa Dembele appears to have won the race to the Wanda Metropolitano, with the Frenchman close to becoming an Atletico player. Real Sociedad’s Willian Jose had also been in the running.
There is one forward, though, who would be a fairly popular choice amongst supporters of Los Rojiblancos – and it’s neither Dembele nor Willian Jose.
A portion of the Atletico fanbase have been calling for their club to sign Giovanni Simeone on social media. Diego Simeone‘s son currently plays in Serie A with Cagliari.
The former Genoa and Fiorentina striker has scored five goals this season and has always made known his desire to play for Atletico one day.
The keys to Simeone’s game are his finishing, his hold-up play and his work rate, which would suit his father’s side to a tee.
