Manchester United and Arsenal among 15 teams watching Luciano Vietto

The 22-year-old had a difficult debut season at Atletico and it seems he won't get a chance to rectify that in a second season

The list of clubs interested in Luciano Vietto is long. It includes teams like Barcelona, Valencia, Sevilla, Villarreal, AC Milan, Inter, Roma and Lazio with Manchester United and Arsenal also reportedly keeping tabs on the Argentine striker.

Following a move to Atletico last season, it hasn't really worked out for the 22-year-old and talk is heating up surrounding a move. He scored just three times in 28 appearances and just once in the league during 19 outings.

Atletico are thought to be in the market for a new number nine and have Borja Baston returning to the Calderon and Fernando Torres remaining for one more year.

Celta Vigo's style of play might suit Vietto and with them looking like they could lose Nolito to either Barcelona or Atletico Madrid, it could be a decent fit. The move was rumoured to be close but now it seems more teams are interested in acquiring the services of the attacker.

There is sure to be plenty of movement this summer in and out of Atletico as Diego Simeone pushes the board of directors at Atletico to sign more world class talent. Atletico have been quick to move on uninspiring talent in recent years including Mario Mandzukic and Jackson Martinez. Vietto was given chances but it has simply not worked out.
