Spanish champions Atletico Madrid are set to join race to sign Swansea City forward Michu, according to the Express.
West Ham United have made an offer of £6m to the South Wales club in an attempt to secure the services of the 28 year old, while Serie A side Napoli have also been mentioned as potential suitors.
The as yet one-time Spain international moved to the Liberty Stadium from Rayo Vallecano two years ago, and has so far scored twenty-eight goals in sixty-two appearances in all competitions though he spent much of last season on the side-lines.
Atleti are set for a busy summer in the transfer market, with Diego Costa strongly linked with a move away from the club, while fellow Spain striker David Villa has already signed a deal with MLS side New York City.
Diego Simeone’s side clinched the 2013/14 La Liga title on the final day of the campaign with a 1-1 draw against Barcelona, and they can be backed at 14/1 to retain the trophy next season.
