Atletico Madrid are chasing Manchester City striker Alvaro Negredo.

The Mirror says the Spanish club want the Manchester City striker to replace Diego Costa who is poised to join Chelsea.

City striker Negredo was a huge success in the first half of last season but lost his place towards the end.

Atletico, who have also been linked with Spurs striker Roberto Soldado, believe they may be able to get Negredo as City have such a wealth of strikers.
