Sevilla reject Atletico Madrid offer of Nikola Kalinic

Sevilla have rejected the opportunity to sign Atletico Madrid striker Nikola Kalinic, who Marca report was offered to the Andalusian club.

Kalinic only joined Atleti from Milan in a €15m deal this summer but has started just five La Liga games, netting twice.

In separate developments, Diego Simeone’s side reportedly want to add Chelsea’s out-of-favour striker Alvaro Morata but reports say Los Rojiblancos are at the limit of their capped wage at €293m per annum.

That means sales must be generated before any additions come into their first-team squad while Gelson Martins, another summer arrival, is another player whom Atleti are thought to be keen to offload.
