Atletico Madrid and Sevilla have reportedly held talks with Welsh hero Hal Robson-Kanu as the player who is without a club impressed at Euro 2016 and scored a fabulous goal that would help his country into an unprecedented semi-final spot against Portugal before ultimately losing to the eventual winners.

The former Reading striker was close to a move to Hull City but that move has stalled and he now could be in line to join either Atletico or Sevilla, both of whom are in the market for a striker. It sounds fantastical and most likely is but we just wanted to get the chance to embed this video into a story.

Atletico are reportedly close to signing Kevin Gameiro from Sevilla and while Diego Costa remains a remote possibility, it would seem as though Diego Simeone is keeping his options open this summer.

Sevilla might be more of a realistic landing spot with Fernando Llorente supposedly set to join Swansea with Real Sociedad also keeping their noses in for a possible deal.
