Atleti chase Callejon deal

Atletico Madrid are interested in a deal to sign former Real Madrid forward Jose Callejon from Napoli this summer, according to reports.

Marca cites a report in La Gazzetta dello Sport that Los Rojiblancos and Milan are both interested in the 31-year-old, who Napoli would allow to leave for his €23m release clause this summer.

Callejon joined the Serie A side from Madrid in 2013 for a €10m fee and has gone on to score 74 goals in 257 outings for the club.

He was practically ever-present under Maurizio Sarri and this season scored 12 goals with 17 assists in 50 competitive appearances.

However, new boss Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly willing to allow his departure with Atleti among the interested parties.

Capped five times by Spain, Callejon spent three seasons at Espanyol before making 77 appearances for Madrid between 2011 and 2013.
