Atlético de Madrid transfers: The central defender Cholo Simeone asks for

The Atlético de Madrid He comes from signing an exciting summer transfer market for his fans with first-rate additions (Rodrigo de Paul, Matheus Cunha and Antoine Griezmann) that will give a plus to the team in different areas of the field, but that was not complete because they continue to have an important space to cover for the following seasons. We are talking about the central defense.

Despite having four high-level centrals (José María Giménez, Stefan Savic, Felipe and Mario Hermoso), Diego Pablo Simeone is using a defense with three centrals so he only has four names for three positions and only one piece for to vary. If he is going to give continuity to this system, they need to incorporate one more defender. Nehuén Pérez still does not win the trust of Cholo (he was loaned to Udinese), who opted for Kondogbia at the time in that area without many positive results.

Simeone’s Chosen: Sven Botman

For that reason, the Argentine coach has requested the signing of one more center-back in the next transfer market, be it the winter or the summer, and would have a name that would give him a leap in quality both in the short and in the long term. We are talking about Sven Botman.

The young Dutch center-back comes from being one of the stars of the Lille who won Ligue 1 last season. He is a forceful center-back, good ball treatment and that would fit perfectly in the Atlético de Madrid system.

The only “but” of his signing is that his price is quite high (30 million euros) because he ends his contract in the summer of 2025 and Lille has no intention of leaving him for a low price. l Seville had him in their sights in case the departure of Jules Koundé to Chelsea was confirmed.
