The 23-year-old enjoyed the best season of his career last term, bagging 24 goals in 36 league matches, catching the eye of Europe’s top clubs in the process.
Sides from France, England, Germany and Belgium have already taken notice, but it would appear as though Atletico Madrid have moved to the front of the queue.
According to France Football, los Colchoneros have established initial contact with the striker’s employers with a view to luring the player to Vicente Calderon this summer.
Atletico Madrid have yet to sign replacements for Diego Costa, David Villa and Adrian Lopez, but they seem to be convinced that Delort has got what it takes to play at the highest level.
The striker was especially impressive towards the end of last season, scoring 11 goals in final 8 matches of the league campaign.
