Atletico Madrid join the hunt for Wolves attacker Diogo Jota

There has been intense speculation surrounding the future of Diogo Jota in the last period.

According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Atletico Madrid have joined the hunt for Wolves attacker Diogo Jota.

Wolves spent 14 million euros to sign the Portugal international from Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2018. The 23-year-old has a valid contract with Wolves until June 2023.

The 23-year-old is considered to be one of the best attackers in Portugal. As a member of Portugal national football team, Jota won two caps.

Diogo Jota has been one of the star players for Wolves this season.

Diego Simeone is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this summer.

Atletico are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.

Jota would provide a good variety to Atletico’s attack.

According to the report, Atletico Madrid are reportedly ready to rival Manchester United and Arsenal to sign Wolves attacker Diogo Jota this summer. According to Madrid-based media outlet Marca, Atletico are keen on bringing their former player back to the Spanish capital, with a fee of £30million being mooted. Jota departed the Vicente Calderon Stadium in July 2017, originally joining Wolves on loan before a permanent deal was struck the following January. The 23-year-old has gone on to notch an impressive 43 goals in 120 games, including 15 in the Premier League, after a 17-goal haul in the Championship two seasons ago. Jota has saved some of his best performances for the Europa League and scored back-to-back hat-tricks in the competition, including an 11-minute treble off the sub’s bench against Besiktas in December. The Wolves forward failed to make a senior outing for Atletico during his brief time in Madrid, having signed a five-year deal in 2016 when he joined from Portuguese outfit Pacos de Ferreira. But after a brilliant campaign so far, Wolves are doing their best to try and keep hold of star men Jota, Raul Jimenez and Adama Traore – with United and Barcelona also said to be keen on the latter two.”

It would take a huge offer from Atletico to prise the 23-year-old attacker from Wolves.

The 23-year-old would be a very good addition for Atletico Madrid and they can afford him as well.

Atletico fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.

How strong that interest is and whether Atletico will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
