Atletico Madrid’s Pursuit Of La Liga’s Top Scorer Hit A Snag Despite Initial Confidence

Artem Dovbyk

Written by OIaleye Oluwadamilola

Atletico Madrid are prioritizing a striker this transfer window, and La Liga’s top scorer Artem Dovbyk of Girona seems like a perfect target. However, securing him might take some work.

More Details

Atletico have already had a €25 million bid rejected for the 27-year-old Ukrainian. While Dovbyk reportedly wants the move, negotiations are hitting a snag. Girona are demanding his €40 million release clause, which Atletico are unwilling to activate.

Despite a disappointing Euro 2024 for Ukraine, Dovbyk was La Liga’s most consistent forward last season. He bagged the Pichichi award with 24 goals and even chipped in with 10 assists. Atletico will likely need to improve their offer to land their man.

Meanwhile…

Valencia are prioritizing signing Luis Rioja permanently and have opted not to exercise their €2 million buy option for young attacker Peter Federico, who was on loan from Real Madrid last season.

Federico impressed during his loan spell, but Valencia find the €2 million price tag too high. His loan expires today, and while they’re interested in bringing him back, they want to negotiate a lower fee with Real Madrid.

This is good news for Valencia, as Federico reportedly has no desire to stay at Real Madrid if it means playing for their reserve team, Castilla. This leverage could help them secure a better deal for the promising attacker.
