Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are reportedly keeping tabs on Villarreal’s Italian midfielder Roberto Soriano.
Mundo Deportivo cites Sky Sport Italia in that Soriano is in Barca’s “orbit” and Atleti’s “list of targets” after an impressive start to life at Villarreal.
The 25-year-old only joined the Yellow Submarine from Sampdoria in the summer for a club-record €14m but already has four goals and five assists in La Liga.
Soriano, who began his career with Bayern Munich, is a central midfielder by trade but prefers to play the ‘Koke’ role on the left.
