Liverpool looks as though they may be forced to abandon plans they had in place for both Villarreal striker Luciano Vietto and possible a move for Juventus striker Carlos Tevez after manager Diego Simeone spoke of how he would like to bring his fellow countryman to the Vicente Calderon.
“One always gets excited if you have players like Tevez,” Simeone told Spanish sports newspaper AS. “More than the goals he can score per season, he has football running through his veins. It would be an ideal reinforcement considering the way we experience football at Atletico Madrid.”
He added: “Vietto is one of our aims. We are close to signing him. I hope we can have him with us next season because he is a player that has extraordinary characteristics.”
