Atletico Madrid are reportedly contemplating an ambitious move to sign Barcelona midfielder Riqui Puig.

Barcelona midfielder Riqui Puig has reportedly emerged as a potential transfer target for Atletico Madrid.

Despite his lack of game time under Ronald Koeman, the 21-year-old recently agreed to sign a new two-year contract at Camp Nou.

Puig's future will be discussed during the summer as Koeman contemplates handing the prospect a season-long loan at another club.

However, according to Fichajes, Atletico boss Diego Simeone is prepared to make Puig a key player at Wanda Metropolitano.

The report suggests that Simeone wants to develop his team's playing style next season, switching to a more attack-minded setup.

Although Barcelona will not want to help strengthen one of their main rivals, their financial situation may dictate that they have to consider offers for their fringe players.
