Atletico Madrid eyeing Lyon's on-form star Bruno Guimares

Mon 01 March 2021 | 9:49

Atletico Madrid are rumored to have an eye on Lyon midfielder star Bruno Guimares for the summer transfer activity.

Reports suggested the Atleti coach

Diego Simeone

was keen to sign the 23-year-old in the previous summer as he hoped to help his midfield alternatives in front of the 2020/21 mission. 

Be that as it may, the French side declined to let him leave in the last days of the transfer window, despite Roji Blancos' persisting interest. 

As indicated by 

Mundo Deportivo

, Simeone is as yet following the Brazil international after another noteworthy season with the French club. 

Guimares joined Lyon as a loanee from the Brazilian club

Athletico Paranaense

in 2017, preceding getting paperwork done for a permanent contract a year later. 

As a component of his present arrangement at the Groupama Stadium, he is under the agreement until 2024, after concurring on renewal and a compensation increment in 2020. 

Lyon will probably oppose any endeavors to sign him again this mid-year, yet they could consider opening talks over a deal if the

La Liga

leaders meet their requesting cost from £25m.
