Luciano Vietto’s agent is in the Spanish capital to seal a £20 million move from Villarreal to Atletico Madrid – according to reports on Inside Spanish Football.
Speculation about Vietto has been rising since January, with English giants Liverpool and Arsenal both reportedly keen on the youngster.
He finished as top scorer for Villarreal this season, banging in 18 goals in 42 games.
After becoming one of the league’s hottest players last term, the 21 year old has always been on the radar of Madrid. The player has a great affinity for Diego Simeone – the Atletico boss gave him his debut with Racing Club in Argentina back in 2011.
He has not been capped for Argentina at full senior level, but played in the South American Youth Championship for the U-20s in 2013.
It is presumed the deal will be wrapped up in the coming days.
