The Argentinian coach has drawn up a list of targets with a specific focus on reinforcing his midfield in the months ahead.
The 21-year-old burst into the Verona first team in 2020, after joining from the Manchester City youth set up, following a spell back at Red Star Belgrade.
The Serbian international was a mainstay in the Verona midfield in 2021/22, with 30 appearances, as they finished 9th in the table.
Verona are rumoured to have set a €25m asking price for the Serbian international with Atletico facing competition from clubs in Italy, Spain and France.
