Atletico Madrid target Ante Rebic to replace Griezmann 


Atletico Madrid want Ante Rebic to replace the outgoing Antoine Griezmann. 

The Spanish club are resigned to losing the France international this summer after he released a video confirming his decision to leave the club.

The World Cup winner looks set to join rivals Barcelona once his buy-out close decreases next month, leaving Diego Simeone with a sizeable hole to fill in his squad.

And according to Bild, the Argentinean is targeting the Croatian international as a direct replacement.

Rebic only signed a four-year deal with Eintracht Frankfurt at the beginning of last season having originally joined on loan from Fiorentina.

He impressed last season, helping his side reach the Europa League semi-final where they were beaten on penalties by eventual winners Chelsea.

Frankfurt are believed to want more than £40million for the forward, having already lost Luka Jovic to Real Madrid for £62m. 

Atletico are not the only club to have shown interest in the Croatian, with Inter also monitoring his availability.
