Wieffer will not sign for Atleti

Atleti already tried in the winter transfer market and it didn’t come. They tried again in the summer and it didn’t come either. Mats Wieffer, one of the main targets for the Atletico pivot position, will sign for Brighton. This was confirmed by the Dutch journalist Mike Verweij, the The Teelegraff. The English club will pay 30 million euros plus variables by the player of Feyenoord.

In January, Atleti spoke with the agent and the club, but they did not let him leave. Arthur Vermeeren eventually arrived, who has only played five games (two as a starter) and 161 minutes. Furthermore, he has not done so as a pivot. For a new midfielder to arrive, other dominoes have to fall. But in the centre of the field, from which no player has yet left. And Saul is the piece that weighs the most. Simeone is not counting on him, but he still has two years left on his contract and a very high salary, in the top-3 of the squad.

Wieffer may no longer be able to be, but Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, yes, Cholo already wanted him last summer. He only has one year left on his contract. Tottenhamwhere this season he has ceased to be important. From five goals and seven assists, to a bagel in both statistics. And from 3,893 minutes to 1,516. He is one of the alternatives that the club is considering, which has not yet launched a signing in the position.

Atlético de Madrid’s priority this transfer market is to strengthen its defence. Hence, a large part of the financial outlay is directed towards the rear. Paulista, Hermoso and Söyüncü have left; and, if nothing strange happens, Robin Le Normand will arrive. Another signing would still be missing and The main target is David HanckoWieffer’s teammate at Feyenoord this season.
