Atletico Madrid are on a roll in this transfer window as they look to reinforce squad and get back the La Liga title they lost to Barcelona last season.
The Spanish side have already secured one top striker in the form of Jackson Martinez from Porto. Now, they have completed another signing by capturing talented Argentine Luciano Vietto from Villareal.
Not to forget, Fernando Torres is already there as well while Croatian star Mario Mandzukic has been sold to Juventus this summer.
Liverpool are badly in need of a quality goalscorer and were also interested in signing the 21 year old forward who netted 20 goals for the Yellow Submarine last season but Atletico have stolen the march and confirmed the move:
“Atlético de Madrid and Villarreal have reached an agreement for the transfer of Luciano Vietto to our entity,”
The $22m rated star has agreed a six year deal with Diego Simeone’s team and Reds are looking elsewhere.
There are many quality strikers out there in the market and the latest reports suggest that Liverpool are now interested in signing Lyon striker Lacazette. Reds are willing to pay 28 million pounds to secure star forward who scored 31 goals last season.
