The Malian striker of Porto returned to appear in the transfer market rumors as being one of Atletico Madrid's targets to strengthen Diego Simeone's team. Moussa Marega was very close to heading to West Ham but ended up staying at FC Porto.
According to the Spanish newspaper AS, Atletico Madrid has an urgent need to hire an attacker to fill the lack of efficacy verified by Diego Simeone's team, with several names pointed to radas 'colchonero'.
According to the sports daily, the Argentine coach of Atlético de Madrid is not satisfied with the income of Diego Costa and Kalinic and has already given several names to the direction 'colchonera' to strengthen the team, with Cavani being at the top of the list.
However, Atletico Madrid will have some difficulties to hire the Uruguayan forward of Paris Saint-Germain and so the name of Moussa Marega appears as the main alternative to Cavani, writes the AS.
In addition to the interest of Atletico Madrid in Marega, the Spanish press also writes that the forward of FC Porto is being followed closely by Valencia. Marcelino Toral is an admirer of Marega's qualities and has been watching the evolution of FC Porto's Malian international, who have already scored four goals in 10 games this season.
