Atletico Madrid have reportedly set their sights on three Premier League-based players as they look to strengthen their squad for next season, according to the Daily Star.
The Spanish champions have had to cope with three of their own star players leaving for England this summer, with Chelsea raiding their title-winning squad for star striker Diego Costa and left-back Filipe Luis, while Thibaut Courtois has returned to Stamford Bridge after a three-year loan spell at the Vicente Calderon.
Diego Simeone has managed to bring in some good signings as replacements, and his spending is not finished yet as he eyes three big names from leading Premier League sides to come in and enhance his attacking options.
3) Javier Hernandez (Manchester United)
With Diego Costa leaving something of a gap upfront for Atletico, it looks as though they could line up a move for Manchester United misfit Javier Hernandez. The Mexican international has shown himself to be a reliable goalscorer with great instincts in the penalty area, even if his form of late hasn’t been his best. United have many options upfront and may be happy to let Hernandez go as he looks to have slipped to fourth choice at Old Trafford, and he could benefit from an opportunity to make a new start at a different club.
