We are facing one of the most even starts to the season in recent times in LaLiga. Several teams tied on points at the head and very little distance between the first and the tenth, making it clear that this year there is much more equality than usual in the domestic competition. Also in Champions league it has been seen that there are no great differences between the teams either. Atletico Madrid has found that both Porto and Milan have been very close to beating them. That is why Simeone is already working with the sports management to strengthen the team in the winter market.

Cholo does not like how his right wing is performing at the start of the season. He does not trust Vrsaljko at all, which leaves only one clear specialist in the band: Kieran Trippier. The British footballer was fooling around with the possibility of going to Manchester United in the summer, and did not count for the Argentine coach in the first days. Trippier's performance in the first days has not been ideal and that is why Simeone wants a player capable of alternating with the number 23.

Look for someone capable of playing on the right in a defense of four but who is also capable of serving as a winger with a defense of three centrals behind. Combing the market, Atletico has set its eyes on Youcef Atal, the Algerian player who plays for Nice in Ligue 1. Two seasons ago he left a great performance and that made him sound for several big clubs, including Real Madrid.

Atal is a winger with a great offensive vocation. He is extremely fast and has a very good shot from long range. The positive point of Atal is that, in addition to having very good aptitudes in front of the rival goal, he performs very well in defense, going very well to the cut and in the rival brand. With a market value of 15 million according to Transfermarkt, the Nice player would not have too high a starting price.

Atleti would have to manage before the departure of a Vrsaljko that could have a certain lineup in Spain or Italy, but Simeone, who is looking to play a better role in the Champions League this year, after falling in the quarterfinals and eighths in the last two seasons, wants Atal as his next reinforcement for the month of January 2022.
