Real Madrid: Isco offered to Chelsea to make room for Eriksen

With Atlético Madrid struggling for regular goals, Diego Simeone is keen to address the problem.

Atlético have only scored 20 goals in 18 LaLiga matches this season – the club relying heavily on Álvaro Morata's seven strikes.

Simeone's solution could be about to arrive from the French capital, where a Paris Saint-Germain star has fallen down the pecking order. 

Atlético closing on Cavani

Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani is close to joining Atlético Madrid in January, according to AS.

Cavani has reportedly agreed a two-and-a-half-year contract with Atlético, while PSG would prefer to keep the 32-year-old until the end of the season.

The soon-to-be free agent has found himself behind loanee Mauro Icardi, Kylian Mbappé and Neymar this season.

Signing Cavani in the January transfer window could force Atlético to sell due to their salary-limit issue, with Thomas Lemar a possible casualty.
