Atletico Madrid President Enrique Cerezo confirms Sassuolo and Croatia defender Sime Vrsaljko is close to joining.
Vrsaljko has been strongly linked with a €15m move to Vicente Calderon and Cerezo confirmed the full-back has undergone a medical.
“He had a medical [on Wednesday] and I imagine he’ll be ready to come and play next season. I’ll have to learn his name, I still don’t speak Croatian,” Cerezo said, AS reports.
The 24-year-old former Dinamo Zagreb player has been in Serie A since 2013, when he moved to Genoa, signing for Sassuolo a year later.
