Atletico Madrid lining up bid for Man Utd, Man City and Arsenal target Alessio Cerci
Spanish champions Atletico Madrid are lining up a bid for Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United target Alessio Cerci, according to reports.
The attacker – dubbed the Italian Messi – has been tracked by many of the top clubs across Europe.
His club Torino, though, have put a £16m price tag on the in-demand winger – with the Italian club yet to receive an offer that has met their valuation.
Tuttosport report that the English clubs are set to be pipped with Atletico ready to offer around £14m to bring the player to Spain.
And Torino could well accept the offer with the club having already lined up a list of potential replacements.
United, City and Arsenal have all been keen on the player at various times but unless they can make a late offer could now miss out on the exciting star.
Arsenal and City already have plenty of attacking midfielders while United’s new boss Louis van Gaal has admitted this is an area they are looking at strengthening.
