Vietto set for Sporting CP loan

Atletico Madrid forward Luciano Vietto will join Portuguese club Sporting CP on a loan deal in January, according to reports.

The 24-year-old will move to the Lisbon-based giants on a temporary arrangement until the end of the campaign with an option to purchase for €10m, according to A Bola.

Vietto joined Atleti from Villarreal in 2015 in a €20m deal but has scored just once in 25 appearances, with a season-long loan stint at Sevilla in the 2016/17 campaign.

The Argentine rose to prominence with 20 goals in his debut season in Spain with the Yellow Submarine but has struggled to replicate that form since.
