Atletico Madrid are stepping up their interest in Sporting Braga midfielder Rafa Silva, reports A Bola.
Los Colchoneros are still on the lookout for attacking reinforcements and they seem set to make a move on their long-term target.
A Bola understands that Atletico are readying an official proposal for the youngster’s services with a view of luring him to Vicente Calderon in the coming days.
Rafa Silva showed a great deal of potential last season, with some impressive displays in Primeira Liga earning him a place in Portugal’s World Cup squad.
The 21-year-old was an unused substitute in all three matches at the tournament finals, but he is widely expected to add to his three caps in the Euro 2016 qualifiers.
Atletico Madrid face a tough task in an attempt to defend the La Liga trophy, as witnessed by odds of 14/1 offered on los Colchoneros to lift the league title.
