Atletico de Madrid’s coach Cholo Simeone would be about to surprise the media and the fans with the signing of a new player coming from the Premier League who would have been labeled as one of the best striker of the competition, even able to improve the numbers of Kun Agüero and Julian Alvarez at Manchester City with sensational performances this season.

The player in question would be the English 31-year-old striker Callum Wilson from Newcastle, one of the sharpened scorers in the Premier League, where he has scored 7 goals with the Magpies, having already surpassed Julian Alvarez, Raheem Sterling or Martin Odegaard, being only behind superstars in the league like Erling Haaland or Mohamed Salah.

According to the English journal The Guardian, the sensational season performed by Wilson wouldn’t have been unnoticed by Simeone, who would have suggested the name of the veteran Englishman to Atletico de Madrid’s sporting direction to improve the team’s attack in the short term regarding the potential departures of Angel Correa and Memphis Depay in the next few months.

The player would have made a concrete request to Atletico

However, following these sources, the negotiation for the player wouldn’t take place until the summer due to Wilson’s decision of staying at Newcastle until the end of the season to help Eddie Howe’s team to achieve their goal of qualifying for the Champions League as they already did last season.
