Atletico Madrid to face Arsenal and Liverpool competition for striker


Atletico Madrid will face tough competition from Arsenal and Liverpool for Luciano Vietto.

According to AS, the Colchoneros are ready to meet the player's £14m buy-out clause and Villareal are ready to sell, as confirmed by his agent at the start of the month.

But they will face competition from top Premier League clubs.

"We know that a lot of big clubs are watching Luciano Vietto," his agent said.

"There is a lot of competition for him. I think he could leave Villarreal in the summer."

The 21-year-old is also ready to move and would welcome a new experience in Diego Simeone's squad.

"If Atletico offer €20m (£14m) I'll talk it through with my family and agent," he told Radio Villarreal.

"We'll try and come to the best decision, but I think everybody wins if they meet my buyout clause.

Nothing has happened yet, they're just rumours and my head is at Villarreal, although nobody knows what might happen in the future."
