Atletico keen on Monaco hotshot

Spanish giants Atletico Madrid are weighing up summer move for Monaco winger Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco, according to Marca.

Los Colchoneros are on the lookout for an attacking midfielder after agreeing to sell star player Arda Turan to Barcelona, with Benfica’s Nicolas Gaitan the primary target for coach Diego Simeone.

However, with Atletico not ready to meet the Eagles’ asking price, they appear to be turning their attention to Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco.

Los Colchoneros have been following the Belgian starlet throughout the last season, and they believe he can develop into a world-class player.

Persuading Monaco to sell will be no easy task after several star players already left, although the Principality club have already recruited the likes of Fares Bahlouli, Mario Pasalic and Guido Carrillo, among other players.

Ferreira-Carrasco, 21, was in scintillating form last term, having managed 6 goals and 10 assists in 36 Ligue 1 outings for the French giants.
