Atleti want Yilmaz - agent

The agent of Galatasaray striker Burak Yilmaz has revealed that Atletico Madrid are interested in his client.

The Turkish striker has been in spectacular form this season, scoring 18 League goals and hitting the back of the net eight times in the Champions League.

And his representative has admitted that the capital club are an option for the goalscorer, but Italy also appeals.

“It is true that there is particular interest from Atletico,” Ali Egesel told tuttomercatoweb. “But there are other possibilities.

“There are also some Italian teams interested. Last season he nearly joined Lazio, but I do not want to name names.

“Burak is happy at Galatasaray, but if an offer came in, then we are willing to listen.”
