Atletico Madrid to Table Nicolas Tagliafico Bid


A loud transfer whisper is coming from the Netherlands where Voetbal Zone is claiming that La Liga heavyweights Atletico Madrid are prepared to fork out between €20 million and €25 million to acquire the services of Ajax defender Nicolas Tagliafico.

The Argentine left-back has only joined the Eredivisie outfit in January but his stellar rise in the Netherlands has left no one indifferent.

The 26-year-old former Independiente star’s sublime club form earned him a call into the Argentina World Cup squad whereas Tagliafico has also emerged as a transfer target for some of Europe’s biggest clubs.

Arsenal are also said to be keen on the Argentine but it is being reported that Atletico Madrid are prepared to submit a substantial offer to make sure they beat competition to his signature.
