Atletico Madrid might be suspended and unable to register new players but that did not prevent them from working around the clock to reinforce their squad.
Diego Simeone is getting ready to unleash his blood thirsty side this January with two new faces eager to prove a point in La Liga – Diego Costa and Vitolo – whereas the charismatic manager looks set to add another exciting attacking talent to his team.
The reports coming from the Spanish media outlet AS claim that Rojiblancos are closing in on Racing Club star striker Lautaro Martinez.
The Argentina Under-20 international has already been approached by Atletico Madrid representatives who are willing to pay up to €12 million to acquire his services in January and beat the likes of AS Monaco to his signature.
The player himself is said to be extremely eager to make a move to Spain and a deal is close to completion.
