A report claims that Atletico Madrid are close to signing Club America forward Raul Jimenez.

Atletico Madrid are reportedly hours away from announcing the signing of Club America forward Raul Jimenez on a long-term contract.

The 23-year-old, who travelled with the Mexico squad to this summer's World Cup, has been strongly linked with a move to Madrid over the last couple of weeks.

According to AS, a figure in the region of £8m has been agreed between the two clubs, with a medical due to take place this afternoon.

Jimenez is expected to sign a six-year contract with the La Liga champions.
