Atletico Madrid coach Simeone pushing for new striker signing

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone is pushing for a new striker signing.

Marca says with new summer signing Rodrigo De Paul, Atletico are looking for a forward to play ahead of him, and take a little of the load off Luis Suarez, who provided the club with 21 goals last season.

Whoever Atletico sign will depend on their budget, but Diego Simeone has made it clear he is after someone to complement Suarez.

Be that as it may, the possibility of a loan forward with a purchase option, like in the case of Moussa Dembele and Alvaro Morata, continues to be an idea.

Players like Angel Correa, Joao Felix and Yannick Carrasco all filled in as No.9s at times last season and didn't perform in Suarez's absence, hence Simeone's eagerness to bring a new striker on board.

Like in the case of Suarez from Barcelona, it is often the case that the big purchases Simeone is looking for, don't materialise until the latter stages of August.
