Atletico Madrid want Bayer Leverkusen striker Lucas Alario

Atletico Madrid are monitoring a potential move for Bayer Leverkusen striker Lucas Alario this summer, report TyC Sports.

The 26-year-old has eight goals in all competitions this season with the report claiming the Argentine would prefer to play in La Liga than the Bundesliga.

Alario joined Bayer from River Plate in 2017 for a €24m fee but he has failed to settle in Germany and has just one goal across his last 11 appearances – although that did come in a win over Bayern Munich.

The former Colon striker is said to be keen on more regular playing time or the opportunity to join a club of Atleti’s status, the report adds.
