Despite the promising start to the season, Atletico Madrid deteriorated as Diego Simeone’s side is struggling with efficiency this season.
Diego Costa didn’t prove quite as effective as expected since his return to Atletico.
Costa is in his third season since returning, but he has only managed to score abysmal 11 goals in this period.
To make things worse, the striker is out of action with an injury that could see him miss a couple of months of action.
However, it looks like Atletico found his replacement.
Timo Werner is setting the Bundesliga on fire. The youngster is flourishing after a couple of excellent seasons with RB Leipzig.
If the were to join Atleti, the combination of Joao Felix and Timo Werner could be a sight to behold.
