A report claims that Atletico Madrid are considering a move for Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, as they prepare for life without Antoine Griezmann.
Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy is reportedly being considered as a like-for-like replacement for Antoine Griezmann at Atletico Madrid.
Los Rojiblancos are expected to lose Griezmann to domestic rivals Barcelona this summer in a transfer that could be worth up to £100m, while Fernando Torres is also on his way out.
Atleti plan to reinvest that money back into their squad, and The Sun suggests that Vardy has made the list of potential candidates to fill the huge void.
The England international enjoyed another impressive season in front of goal this time around, netting 23 times at club level to nail down his place in the Three Lions' World Cup squad.
Vardy has previously rejected interest from Arsenal to remain at the King Power Stadium, where he has two years to run on a contract worth over £100,000 a week.
