Arsenal & Tottenham Striker Target Stalling On New Contract

Adrian Lopez not sure about new Atletico deal.

Atletico Madrid striker Adrian Lopez is stalling over signing at new deal at the La Liga club, just weeks after he was linked with a move to Spurs and Arsenal.

Lopez is one of the most highly-rated forwards in Spain and his performances last season helped Atletico to win the Europa League and earned him his first call-up to the Spanish senior team.

His form led to interest from the north London duo as well as Catalan giants Barcelona but the 24-year-old decided to stay in the Capital after being promised an improved deal at the club.

But, although Lopez has been offered a new contract at the club, AS reports that he is reluctant to sign it, meaning one his suitors could swoop.

Lopez’s release clause remains a modest £14.5m and Atletico will be aware they are vulnerable to bids for the striker.
