Atleti want Jamie Vardy – report

Atletico Madrid are targeting Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy and Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez as they aim to bolster their squad, say reports.

The Independent report Diego Simeone is keen to revitalise his attacking options and is a big fan of Vardy – who played and scored against Atleti in the Champions League quarter final – and could potentially replace Fernando Torres or Kevin Gameiro.

In April, Atleti captain Diego Godin stated the England international would be good enough to play for Simeone’s first team.

Chilean forward Sanchez, who is reportedly unhappy at the Gunners and seeking a move away, is also linked with a move to Los Rojiblancos having previously enjoyed a three-year stint with Barcelona.

The report continues that Paris Saint-Germain’s Edinson Cavani and Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata are also targets, although both these deals also appear unlikely.
