Brazil Forward Luan In Atletico Madrid’s Sights

are preparing a bid to sign international forward Luan from Gremio, according to reports in Brazilian media.

Atletico Madrid plans to bid on Luan

Atletico officials this week met with Gremio representatives to discuss a possible deal for the 24-year-old, which would not take effect until January due to the Spanish club’s transfer ban for signing minors, the Uol portal reported.

Luan, who was a member of the Brazil team that won the gold medal at last year’s Rio Olympics, has scored 14 goals in 28 matches across all competitions for Gremio this year.

Last week he was rewarded for his fine form by being called up to Brazil’s national team for qualifiers against Ecuador and Colombia.

Gremio are said to have placed a 25 million-euro price tag on the Brazilian, who has also been linked with Spartak Moscow, Sampdoria and Fenerbahce.
