In Catalunya, both Mundo Deportivo and Sport are reporting that Barcelona are close to completing the signing of Luciano Vietto with talks now at an advanced stage.  The Argentine striker has given his approval to the move and now only needs to convince Atlético de Madrid to let him go. Barça are even contemplating a possible loan.

Vietto was one of the priority signings set out by Luis Enrique who is searching for a fourth striker as an alternative to stand in for Messi, Luis Suárez or Neymar when necessary. "We like him a lot, he's got a lot of interesting aspects to his game and could be a good alternative for the team",sources close to negotiations told AS in reference to Vietto.
