According to reports, Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani ‘has agreed to a move from Paris Saint-Germain to Atletico Madrid’.
Diego Simeone is preparing a major overhaul of Atletico’s squad, with a number of high-profile names set to depart, and will need replacements.
Cavani, whose contract at PSG expires next summer, has emerged as the No 1 target to replace Diego Costa if he leaves the club when the summer transfer window opens.
Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo quote reports on radio station Cadena Ser that Cavani has agreed to the move if Costa leaves.
It would bring to a close six free-scoring seasons in France for Cavani, who has netted 193 times in 279 matches across all competitions.
Former Chelsea striker Costa has been linked with a move to the Chinese Super League amid reports that he has fallen out with the hierarchy at Atletico.
The Spain international refused to train with his team-mates in April after the club opened misconduct proceedings following a red card at Barcelona.
Costa was handed an eight-game suspension after launching into a foul-mouthed rant at the referee following his dismissal.
He could join the likes of Antoine Griezmann, Lucas Hernandez, Diego Godin and Juanfran Torres in leaving the Wanda Metropolitano this summer.
