Atletico Madrid close to signing Ante Rebic

Atletico Madrid are closing in on the signing of Eintracht Frankfurt player Ante Rebic in a deal worth €40m, according to reports.

Rebic signed a four-year deal with the German at the start of the 2018-19 campaign after leaving Serie A club Fiorentina, following a season-long loan in Frankfurt in 2017-18.

Diario AS now cite a report from Sky in Austria that the player who netted 10 goals and provided six assists last season is closing in on a move to Los Rojiblancos.

He has impressed in his first full season at the club, forming an excellent partnership with Luka Jovic - who has since joined Real Madrid - with interest also coming in from Inter.

Atleti are continuing to reinvest in their squad ahead of the new campaign and have already confirmed deals for Marcos Llorente, Felipe Monteiro and Renan Lodi.

Croatian international Rebic has previously had loan spells at RB Leipzig and Hellas Verona but it has been at Frankfurt where he has emerged as a genuine in-demand talent.
