Atletico Madrid move for Arsenal target Justin Kluivert

Atletico Madrid have taken concrete steps to sign Roma winger Justin Kluivert, according to Tuttomercatoweb.

The 21-year-old has been linked with Arsenal lately, potentially in a deal that would see Henrikh Mkhitaryan go the other way.

However, Arsenal are in no rush to sign Kluivert at the moment, complicating things for Roma.

Roma rate Kluivert at €35m and their idea is to take Mkhitaryan, currently on loan at the Italian club, plus between €10-15m in cash from the Gunners.

Mkhitaryan wants to stay in Rome, but Arsenal’s asking price of €20m is too high for the debt-ridden club.

Kluivert joined Roma from Ajax in 2018 for €18.75m and they hope to make a profit on their investment.

The Giallorossi may have another buyer for the talented Kluivert, son of Barcelona legend Patrick Kluivert.

La Liga club Atletico Madrid have come forward and made serious moves for the Dutch forward, TMW reports.

Diego Simeone would like to add Kluivert to his Atleti squad, possibly as a replacement for €70m flop Thomas Lemar.

Kluivert has made 27 appearances in all competitions this season with a return of seven goals and two assists.
