Atletico Madrid continue their pursuit of the top talent in the game having lost three of their starting eleven from last season. Attention has now turned to injured Ajax winger Viktor Fischer.
Fischer, who is currently recovering from a hamstring injury, is considered one of the best young talents in Europe and Los Rojiblancos are more than willing to pay the €15 million that may be required to prise the youngster away from the Dutch club.
The injury the young Dane suffered was quite a severe hamstring tear which required surgery and geerally has a recovery time of four months. The operation took place on April 22 in Gothenburg, Sweden.
With Atletico also believed to be in advanced stages of a transfer for Antoine Griezmann, it would mean that the beaten Champions League finalists’ would have upgraded several key positions since their magical campaign last year.
Fischer, who just turned 20 during the summer, has appeared 47 times for Ajax and scored on 13 occasions. He also has Champions League experience, having played eight times over two seasons at this stage of his career.
