La Liga transfer latest: Atleti eye another replacement for Chelsea target Filipe Luis

All the latest summer transfer news from La Liga...

Atletico Madrid's successful season saw them win the La Liga title and reach the Champions League final, but Diego Simeone is already facing up to life without top goalscorer Diego Costa, whilst he's also anticipating that left back Filipe Luis will join Costa at Chelsea this summer.

He's already landed Granada's Brazilian full back Guilherme Siquiera as a replacement, but speculation today suggests that he isn't content with that, and has now agreed a deal with Zenit St. Petersburg to take Argentine full back Cristian Ansaldi on loan for the season. The 27-year-old, formerly of Rubin Kazan, looks set to arrive on a loan deal before joining Simeone's men permanently, all of which suggests that Luis is moving closer to a move to Chelsea.

Barcelona's rebuilding exercise this summer has already seen the likes of Victor Valdes, Carles Puyol and Cesc Fabregas leave the Camp Nou in one way or another, whilst forward Alexis Sanchez is on the verge of sealing a deal to sign for Premier League side Arsenal - and it seems there are more players leaving too.

Mexican midfielder Jonathan dos Santos has been all but invisible in recent seasons, unable to break into a stacked Barcelona midfield. Now, dos Santos has finally left the club in search of first team football, reuniting with his brother Giovani at Villarreal. Dos Santos turned down moves to Porto and Real Sociedad in order to play with his brother again, and joins for around €2m.

He's joined out of the Camp Nou exit door by winger Isaac Cuenca, who has reportedly had his contract cancelled by new manager Luis Enrique ahead of his move to Deportivo La Coruna. The 23-year-old impressed back in 2011 under Pep Guardiola, but has struggled to make an impact in the last two seasons, and will now join newly promoted Depor on a free transfer.
