Atletico Madrid are currently in talks with Olympique Lyon to sign French striker Moussa Dembele this month.
With Diego Costa departing the club last month after terminating his contract, Diego Simeone is now looking to bolster his attack as they challenge for the LaLiga title.
It has now been confirmed Los Rojiblancos want to sign Dembele, who has previously been linked with Manchester United.
"Moussa came to see me, he thinks that this is the moment to change teams, that he has lost a bit of motivation,” Lyon sporting director Juninho told Telefoot.
“This was not something we foresaw, I like him a lot.
“Keeping someone who does not really want to keep up the intensity through the next five months, that is not ideal.
“We are in talks with Atletico, I think that Moussa has found an agreement with Atletico.”
