Atletico Madrid enter the race for Aymen Abdennour

According to our colleagues at Foot Mercato, Spanish side Atletico Madrid have entered the race for defender Aymen Abdennour.

The Madrid based side are understood to have made an opening €16m bid for the player, but Monaco want a deal which totals to almost double that amount. The player’s reps are understood to have held positive discussions in Madrid today, but Atletico will have to raise their offer if they wish to get their man, who has seen higher offers from AC Milan and West Ham United rejected by ASM. The contours of a 5 year contract worth €1.5m a year net have been established with Atleti.
