Atletico outcast interesting Saints

Repots claim Southampton are keen to seal a loan deal for Atletico Madrid misfit Luciano Vietto during the summer transfer window.

Atletico paid Villareal £17m for the former Argentina Under-20 striker in 2015 but he failed to shine and scored just one La Liga goal from 19 appearances during his first season for Los Rojiblancos.

Diego Simeone was not impressed and shipped him out on a season-long loan to Sevilla where he notched six goals from 21 outings in a moderate campaign.

The South American is back in Madrid but surplus to requirements and it seems as though Atletico are keen to see him leave on a permanent basis.

Clubs such as Marseille, Valencia and Sampdoria have also expressed an interest, according to Spanish newspaper Sport, but now Saints have thrown their hat into the ring and it will be up to the player to choose his destination.
