Atleti after Toulouse’s Capoue

Atletico Madrid are set to make a move for Toulouse midfielder Etienne Capoue, reports in the Spanish Press have suggested.

AS believe that Diego Simeone’s side will go all-out for the 25-year-old, after his move to Cardiff fell through.

Atleti had offered €7m for the France international earlier this summer, but that was quickly rejected by the Ligue 1 team.

In the meantime, the Premier League side had all-but agreed a €10m transfer for Capoue, but the player himself was reticent to move to Wales.

As such, the Rojiblancos will try again for the defensive midfielder, and could rise to the €10m mark.

Capoue has previously been linked with a host of European clubs, including Roma.
