Costa Rica international goalkeeper Keylor Navas admits that it "would be sensational" to join Atletico Madrid, who are looking for a replacement for Thibaut Courtois.

Keylor Navas has admitted that it "would be sensational" to move to Atletico Madrid from Levante this summer.

The Costa Rican international is being tipped as a target for Diego Simeone, who is looking to replace Chelsea loanee Thibaut Coutois in between the posts next season.

Levante do not plan on selling Navas, despite the 27-year-old having only one year left on his contract, but he could be Madrid-bound if Los Colchoneros meet his reported €10m (£8m) buy-out clause.

"Atleti? It would be sensational," Navas is quoted as saying by El Mundo Deportivo. "I really like this team a lot."

Atletico sold one of their back-up goalkeepers, Sergio Asenjo, to Villarreal on Friday.
