The agent of Chievo Verona defender Andrea Mantovani isn't surprised by the interest of Spanish Liga clubs.

Atletico Madrid and Valencia are tracking Mantovani this term.

Graziano Battistini told TMW: "Still no one from Spain has established a direct contact with us, but I do not doubt that big teams such as Atletico Madrid, Sevilla and Valencia were already following him for a long time.

"Mantovani is a highly sought player and it is clear to play in the Spanish Liga would be good for him."
