Atletico Madrid are eyeing Liverpool’s Bosman prospect Roberto Firmino.
AS says Atletico have Firmino on their summer shopping list.
The Reds forward would theoretically replace the role of Joao Felix in the squad – after the Portugal international joined Chelsea on a loan deal for the remainder of the campaign in January.
It is claimed that Marcus Thuram remains the prime attacking target for Atleti; the France international is, like Firmino, a free agent this summer as his deal at Borussia Monchengladbach expires. The club are said to be planning for the possibility that Felix joins Chelsea on a permanent basis.
Firmino’s agent, Roger Wittmann, has confirmed that despite indicating to the Reds his wish to leave this summer, he has not spoken to other clubs or planned his future for beyond the campaign.
