Atletico Madrid keeping tabs on Ighalo, Lacazette

Diego Simeone has already identified several transfer targets he will attempt to bring to Atletico Madrid in the summer, Spanish daily As have learned.

Rojiblancos have named Watford striker Odion Ighalo and Lyon forward Alexandre Lacazette as their primary summer signings as Diego Simeone look to add more firepower to his current fold.

Atletico Madrid boss has forged a rock-solid defensive unit and his team have conceded mere 11 league goals this term, but Rojiblancos have at the same time found the back of the net just 36 times.

Simeone believes Ighalo and Lacazette would add an extra edge to his attack line and the Argentine will be looking to make a move for the two forwards in order to add competition for places upfront.

Atletico Madrid have sold Jackson Martinez during the winter and Diego Simeone wants at least another striker for the new season as he plans to attack the La Liga title once again.

In addition to Ighalo and Lacazette, As claims that Atletico Madrid are also eyeing Sevilla’s Enver Banega who is believed to have reached an agreement with Inter Milan.
