Atletico Madrid are interested in sought-after Spain striker Alvaro Morata, reports Marca.
Atleti boss Diego Simeone wants to sign a proven top-class centre-forward this summer to allow his side to take a step forward domestically and in Europe next term.
Edinson Cavani, Diego Costa and Gonzalo Higuain are among the targets on his shortlist, but the club are also keen on Juventus frontman Morata.
The Spaniard is likely to return to his former club Real Madrid in the next few weeks, but the Bernabeu giants are expected to cash in on him once again shortly afterwards.

It will be a challenge for Atleti to sign him, though, as they will struggle to meet the player’s wage demands.
In addition, Arsenal, Chelsea and both Manchester clubs are set to provide fierce competition for the forward’s signature.
