Throughout the last season, a constant concern in the Atletico Madrid dressing room was the lack of a potent striker. While there were several options at Diego Simeone’s disposal, in theory, underperformance became a constant issue.

According to reports from Paulina Benavente, Los Rojiblancos have signed Atletico San Luiz striker German Berterame. While his future is not yet clear, he is expected to turn up for pre-season under Diego Simeone.

Depending on his performances in training and in pre-season, Berterame can make the move to Atletico Madrid’s senior team or continue in the youth league for a while.

The Argentine’s contract with the Mexican club ends on June 30th, and one would expect his move to the Wanda Metropolitano to be on a free transfer. However, his signing has not been officially announced by the club and the exact economics involved are unknown.

In 20 Liga MX Clausura starts in the recent season, Berterame scored eight goals and provided four assists. His nine goals in Liga MX Apertura take his goal tally to 17 in the past season.

Luis Suarez is set to leave Los Rojiblancos in the coming summer, with the player having already said his farewell. Further, Angel Correa’s future at the club is in the air too as the player wishes for a change in scenery.

In such a scenario, the goal-scoring responsibilities will likely fall on the shoulders of Matheus Cunha and Berterame next season. Nevertheless, it remains to be seen if the player manages to seamlessly make the transition to La Liga.

Tottenham Hotspur hold an interest in key Atletico Madrid duo

According to MARCA, Tottenham Hotspur have shown an interest in signing key Atletico Madrid stars Yannick Carrasco and Jan Oblak and could look to make a move for the duo in the summer.

Tottenham and Atletico have fostered a good working relationship in recent times, with the Rojiblancos signing Sergio Reguilon on loan from the Premier League club in the summer.

Following that, the Colchoneros secured the signing of Matt Doherty in January on a free transfer after Tottenham handed him a letter of freedom so that he can join the La Liga club.

Now, it is being claimed that Tottenham could look to capitalise on it and act on their interest in both Carrasco and Oblak.

Carrasco has been a topic of interest at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for some time now. The Lilywhites have even made attempts to sign him in the past but were unable to pull off the transfer.

However, with the 29-year-old reportedly disgruntled at Atletico, a summer exit could be on the cards. Barcelona have secured an option to sign the winger for a fee of €20 million in the summer, but Tottenham could offer more if they are serious about signing him.

Meanwhile, Oblak has also been on the radars of Tottenham for some time. With captain and first-choice goalkeeper Hugo Lloris nearing the end of his career, the north London club have identified the Slovenian ace as a possible replacement for the Frenchman.

Oblak has been a permanent fixture in the lineup at Atletico Madrid for close to a decade now. But he harbours hopes of playing in the Premier League while he also wishes to challenge for trophies – something that has not happened at Atletico this term or the last season.

It could compel him to consider a move away from the Civitas Metropolitano, and Tottenham would be lying in wait if such a scenario materialises.
