Fulham striker Luciano Vietto to join Sporting CP

Luciano Vietto is set to join Sporting CP this summer when he returns to Atletico Madrid from his loan at Fulham, according to reports.

The Argentine striker has endured another frustrating campaign – netting just one goal in 22 appearances for the West London club, who have been relegated from the top flight.

Portuguese channel RTP say the agreement for the 25-year-old to join Lisbon giants Sporting CP is already in place and is in relation to the deal which took Gelson Martins to Atleti last summer.

Vietto joined Atleti from Villarreal in the summer of 2015 for €20m but has struggled for form since, including underwhelming loan stints at Valencia and Sevilla.
