Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone is delighted with their swoop for Club America striker Raul Jimenez.

Jimenez joined Atletico this week in a big money move.

"I think with Raúl Jiménez’s arrival, we have considered the sort of characteristics the team needed,” Simeone told La Sexta.

“I would describe him as a young player, a player who is active mainly in and around the area. He has pace and considering we have Griezmann, Raúl García and Mandzukic, with Jiménez, we have built quite a formidable front line."
