Atletico Madrid identify Maxi Gomez as Diego Costa replacement

La Liga heavyweights Atletico Madrid are widely expected to make attacking reinforcements during the January transfer window.

With former AC Milan forward Nikola Kalinic failing to settle in with Los Colchoneros – despite scoring in the Copa del Rey win over Sant Andreu – and with Diego Costa ruled out with injury, Diego Simeone has been on the lookout for new recruits.

Spanish sources are reporting that Atletico Madrid have already set their sights on Maxi Gomez who’s been identified as a perfect replacement for former Chelsea man.

Celta Vigo superstar has been the subject of several offers from England and China over the past period of time and his employers are keen to hold on to their prized asset for a bit longer.

Atletico Madrid will test Celta Vigo’s resolve during the transfer window but will hardly be able to match the player’s release clause currently standing at €50 million, knowing they invested heavily during the summer transfer period.
