ATLETICO DE MADRID LOOKS FOR "GOAL": SHAQUIRI, CERCI OR LAVEZZI

There is concern at Atletico de Madrid with the lack of goal effectiveness. The pre-season & yesterdays 0-0 result in Round 1 of Spanish Liga against Rayo Vallecano highlighted the lack of "goal punch".

Atletico de Madrid has signed well; Mandzukic, Griezzmann & Raul Jimenez, but they still need time to get into the groove & many still remember Diego Costa & his explosive counter-attack runs from midfield. With the Summer transfer summer window to close the 31st of August Clubs are rushing to shut their final offers & transfer/signing attempts.

At Madrid candidate

Spanish Sports paper "AS" informs that Atletico de Madrid has targeted Swiss International & Bayern Munich player Shaquiri. The problem is that Italian Club Juventus FC is also interested & is bidding hard for the Swiss. Added to all this it seems the player has his own preference & would prefer to play in Italy.

Atletico has alternatives in case Shaquiri fails, names being said are Cerci (Torino) & Lavezzi (Paris St Germain). The former was nearly a "done deal" days back & Cerci even put on his Twitter that he was going over to Atletico before removing the tweet & blaming "hackers". 

Stay tuned, it looks as if Atletico de Madrid may make a final push & effort to sign one of the mentioned players in the next days.
