Dalian Yifang in Atletico Madrid talks for Carrasco, Gaitan

Dalian Yifang are making a second raid on Atletico Madrid this week.

With negotiations at an advanced stage over winger Yannick Carrasco, Dalian Yifang are also finalising a deal for teammate Nico Gaitan.

Like Carrasco, Argentina international Gaitan has been frozen out this season by coach Diego Simeone and is happy to move on.

Atletico are now on the brink of selling the midfielder to Dalian Yifang for a fee of €18m. Gaitan has already settled on personal terms over a three-year contract.

Carrasco, meanwhile, is expected to join Dalian Yifang for €30m.
