Atleti Stop Pursuing Dusan Vlahovic, Start Tracking Matheus Cunha

+

After a short period of time that looked as if Serbian striker Dusan Vlahovic would join Los Rojiblancos, Atleti's interest in Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic has waned. In place of the attacker who scored 21 goals last season, Atleti has reportedly started tracking Hertha BSC striker Matheus Cunha. The gold medalist probably favors a move to Atleti over competitors Leeds, but anything can happen. Atleti have gotten to the goal line with numerous different strikers this season, but their shot attempts have been cleared: whether it's been obnoxiously high demands, clubs playing hardball, or players not wanting to join(for some reason), Atleti still lack depth in the number 9 position. With ten more days left in the transfer window, Atleti has grown more and more desperate, as they try to make their first transfer from the Bundesliga since Mario Mandzukic arrived from the Bayern in 2014.
