Atlético eyeing a move for West Ham's Manuel Lanzini

According to various reports in the UK, Atlético Madrid are considering making a move for West Ham playmaker Manuel Lanzini, who has been one of the Premier League club’s bright points in an otherwise difficult season so far.

Atlético may face competition for the 24-year-old Argentina midfielder though with Tottenham also glancing across town toward Lanzini as a possible replacement for Dele Alli. The England international has been strongly linked with a move away from Wembley after emerging as one of the most exciting attacking midfielders in Europe and Real Madrid are among the potential suitors for the 21-year-old.

Serie A sides considering moves for Atlético pair

Meanwhile, reports in Italy suggest that Juventus are preparing to make a fresh bid for Atlético’s Uruguayan defender José María Giménez, whose contract expires next summer leaving him free to speak to clubs outside Spain as of January 1.

The same reports also state that another Atlético defender, Sime Vrsaljko, is on Napoli’s agenda. The current Serie A leaders are looking at making a 14-million-euro bid for the Croatia international in January.
