Atletico Madrid are said to be closing in on their striker signing.
Los Rojiblancos have been searching for a striker throughout this summer as they look to give Luis Suarez some support.
They did that in order to focus on other targets, and it seems Matheus Cunha is their man.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Atleti are closing in on a deal for the Hertha Berlin striker.

It’s reported there have been three days of negotiations and plenty of interest from elsewhere, but Simeone’s men are now in the final stages of the deal with paperwork being prepared.
Cunha, who won a gold medal with Brazil in this summer’s Olympics, has scored 12 in 38 league appearance for Hertha since arriving last year.
He is valued at €30million by Transfermarkt.
