Atletico line up Courtois replacement

Spanish newspaper AS understands that Atletico Madrid are preparing a summer move for Osasuna goalkeeper Andres Fernandez.

With Thibaut Courtois almost certain to end his loan deal from Chelse at the end of the season, los Colchoneros are looking to sign another keeper for the 2013/2014 season.

Club officials believe Sergio Asenjo is a good option, but are eager to sign another player who would provide competition for the 23-year-old.

According to AS, los Colchoneros have set their sights in Osasuna shot-stopper Andres Fernandez.

The 25-year-old is in his second season as a first team regular at Osasuna and Atletico officials believe he has what it takes to succeed at Vicente Calderon.

With los Rojillos deep in the relegation zone at the moment, there is every chance the player will be eager to leave the sinking ship and accept an offer from La Liga high-flyers.

Atletico are also following Sporting Lisbon keeper Rui Patricio, but he would be a much more expensive option.
