Atleti rule out Vrsaljko move

Atletico Madrid have ruled out the exit of full-back Sime Vrsaljko after Napoli enquired about his availability, say reports.

The Italian side will reportedly move for a left-back in January following Faouzi Ghoulam sustaining a serious knee injury against Manchester City that will keep him out for approximately four months.

Sky Sport Italia and Tuttomercatoweb had that Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis had personally phoned up his contacts at Atleti to enquire about the availability of Croatian Vrsaljko.

Los Rojiblancos ruled out any sale in no uncertain terms and stated the 25-year-old, formerly in Italy with Genoa and Sassuolo, played a big part in Diego Simeone’s plans.
