Atletico Madrid to attack Premier League market with triple signing

Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United should all ready themselves to receive a bid as Atletico Madrid go on the transfer market offensive.

Santi Cazorla, Fernando Torres and Javier Hernandez will all be the subject of imminent bids from Atletico Madrid, according to the Daily Star who quote "reports in Spain" as their source.

A move for Cazorla has logic as Atletico look to make a statement following the high profile exits of Diego Costa and Filipe Luis to Chelsea.

The creative Arsenal attacker, who is adept at playing a central role as well as playing on the left of the three in a 4-2-3-1, recently spoke highly of the La Liga champions by claiming they "are a good example to follow".

This follows on from weeks of reports that indicate Atleti regard Cazorla as a player who commands the international pedigree required to appease fans who may be disheartened at the sales ratified in the summer window thus far.

However, because of the €22 million acquisition of Mario Mandzukic from Bayern Munich, manager Diego Simeone is unlikely to attack the Premier League market for two different strikers like the Daily Star suggest as Chelsea forward Fernando Torres and Manchester United attacker Javier Hernandez are both linked.

The latter is the likelier option.

The Daily Mail recently focused on Simeone's fondness for Hernandez and the Mexican hitman could be surplus to requirements at Manchester United as Louis van Gaal has a wealth of talent in the striking roles at his new club.
