Atletico Madrid are prepared to change up their squad during the transfer window, though Diego Simeone is not dwelling on what it may look like.

The Rojiblancos lie fourth in LaLiga, having struggled to keep pace with pacesetters Barcelona and Real Madrid this season.

That has helped fuel rumours of a reshuffle among the pack, with Brazil international Matheus Cunha having already joined Wolves and Joao Felix linked to an exit.

But speaking ahead of his side’s Copa del Rey clash with Oviedo, Simeone suggested he would be ready for whatever changes unfold within his team.

“You know how I think, I am prepared for what may happen,” he said. “We are employees of the club and everything that happens [is] for the benefit of the club.

“The team must be prepared to find solutions. Imagining what could happen and trying to find solutions until it happens, it is clear that it does not make any sense.”

Quizzed on Joao Felix’s future, Simeone sidestepped directly addressing the matter, but acknowledged it would be best for a swift resolution to all involved.

“For the footballers, representatives and coaches, the peace of mind of knowing where you are going to be is important,” he added.

With their league aspirations effectively out of reach, the Copa del Rey represents another chance for Atletico to chase silverware this season.

Simeone acknowledges the need to find results that can improve a difficult campaign, adding: “It is a season [that has gone] from regular to bad [and] we need to improve. “
