In light of the agreement between Diego Costa and Atletico Madrid for his departure, the team is already looking for a replacement. Maxi Gómez, Loren Morón and Arkadiusz Milik being the favourites for the post.
The relationship between Diego Costa and Atlético Madrid is about to come to an end. Simeone does not want to be left without a substitute, so the club is already working hard to find a replacement in the imminent winter market.
An early name mentioned was Maxi Gómez, the Valencia forward that Luis Suárez already knows well through the Uruguayan Selection, now two new names arise on the horizon.
As ‘Marca’ reveals, Atletico’s interest in Milik from Napoli is growing. The team directed by Gattuso wants to avoid his departure to Juventus, as the striker finishes his contract in June. A transfer to Atletico has not been ruled out until then at almost zero cost.
The Polish poacher has not played yet this season after his intention not to renew and has the profile that Simeone wants for the first team if Diego Costa finally leaves.
Another alternative is Loren Morón, according to ‘Cadena SER’. The striker of Betis, while less so than the other two, he’s also on the list of possibilities.
Loren’s profile is a little different, as he has only been able to score one goal in the eleven games he has played this season with the green-white team – he has only enjoyed one start.
