Real Betis striker Borja Iglesias is calm about his future and is happy at the club, amid reported interest from Atletico Madrid.
Diego Simeone’s side have already lost Matheus Cunha ahead of the mid-season transfer window and could see Joao Felix depart, with the Portugal international heavily linked with several Premier League sides.
That exit would leave Atletico short of attacking options heading into the second half of the season and it is reported Simeone is targeting the addition of a striker when the window opens for business.
Iglesias is said to have attracted Atletico’s attention, having scored eight goals in 13 LaLiga appearances this term – only Barcelona’s Robert Lewandowski (13) has scored more – but appeared to have little interest in that speculation.
“To this day I have nothing to talk about. I’m focused on Betis, on Thursday, on enjoying our fans again, our stadium and winning,” he said, as quoted by El Chiringuito.
“You have to give it normality and be calm. I am happy here and if at any time there is a need to talk, I will speak. No problem. We’ve joked about the situation and that’s it, without giving it much importance.
“I have always felt very loved. I am very happy here and I appreciate that affection. I have nothing to say about all this. I can contribute little to this situation for now.”
Betis and Atletico are level on 24 points, alongside Athletic Bilbao, amid a fierce battle for a top-four finish and Champions League qualification.
