Atleti chase Torino’s Immobile?

With Diego Costa set to leave Atletico Madrid in the summer, reports in Spain suggest that they could turn their attentions to Torino’s Ciro Immobile.

The in-form Rojiblancos goalscorer has been heavily linked with a move away from Vicente Calderon at the end of the season, with Chelsea set to table Costa’s release clause of €35m.

As such, El Confidencial believe that Diego Simeone will look to the Italian side’s forward as a possible replacement for next term.

The 24-year-old’s 19 League goals this season have not gone unnoticed in the Spanish capital, with the current Liga leaders set to offer a ‘substantial’ amount to land their man.

The paper fails to give an actual figure, but with the Costa money, and a Champions League windfall, there shouldn’t a problem with financing the deal.

The problem however, could arise from Immobile’s contract situation, as he is currently co-owned by Juventus and Il Toro.

Borussia Dortmund are also thought to be interested.
