Report: Atletico target Simeone Scuffet

A report claims that Atletico Madrid are close to signing Udinese goalkeeper Simeone Scuffet, who will be sent on loan to Granada next season.

Atletico Madrid are reportedly close to signing Udinese goalkeeper Simeone Scuffet, who has been described as the 'next Gianluigi Buffon'.

The 18-year-old, who is widely regarded as one of the best young stoppers in European football, has been strongly linked with a move away from Italy this summer.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Atletico are close to completing a deal for the teenager, who will be sent on loan to Granada next season to gain valuable La Liga experience.

Atletico have already signed goalkeeper Miguel Moya from Getafe this summer, but are still in the market for a new number one, with Thibaut Courtois returning to parent club Chelsea.

Diego Simeone looks on before the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 match between AC Milan and Club Atletico de Madrid at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on February 19, 2014
