Atleti ‘negotiating for Dragovic’

Atletico Madrid are reported once more as already organising transfers for the summer, this time seen as in talks for Aleksandar Dragovic.

The 21-year-old centre-back has already been capped 14 times by Austria and is seen as a rising talent in his position.

Atletico are, according to Punto Pelota, already in talks with his club Basel over a proposed €5m transfer this summer.

Atleti have been seen as making moves in the market in preparation for 2013-14 for a number of weeks, having also been heavily linked with the likes of Leo Baptistao and Jeremy Toulalan.

Dragovic is reportedly viewed by the club as an ideal fit to Diego Simeone’s squad, for his age and his versatility, as he can also feature at defensive midfield.

The youngster moved to Basel just a year ago and has a contract with the Swiss outfit until June 2015.
