In this January transfer window, Atletico Madrid is prioritizing the signing of a new striker after Diego Costa mutually terminated his contract with the club.
Striker Luis Suarez is now the club’s main striker, but with Alvaro Morata already departing over the summer, the squad has a lack of attacking options.
Diario AS has now cited a study from Sky Sport that Atleti has named Real Society striker Willian Jose as the most realistic choice.
In 2013, when he joined Atleti’s cross-city rivals Real Madrid, the Brazilian striker first switched to Spanish football, but he made just one first-team appearance for the club and mostly played for the Castilla team of the club.
He then scored 10 goals at Real Zaragoza and Las Palmas in different seasons, but it was at La Real that he made his name with 59 goals in four and a half campaigns.
The main objective was said to be Arkadiusz Milik of Napoli, but Willian Jose is said to be the most economically and sportingly feasible choice for Los Rojiblancos.
