Only room for a number 9
There will just be 1 signing. It remains to be seen what strategy they will follow. At Atlético they are working on it.
It's obvious that things aren't going Atlético's way. Match after match, the feeling is the same: they lack firepower up top.
If we add Diego Costa's operation and Darío Poveda's ACL injury on to things, everything leads to the same thing: they will have to sign a number 9 in January.
According to 'Marca', Simeone has asked the board to sign an attacker. It is necessary for the rest of the season.
The board are now working on it. The problem? The wage bill... For someone to arrive someone else would have to leave. Lemar is one of the players that could leave the Wanda.
Atlético had ruled out signing anyone in January, but the situation calls for the signing of an emergency number 9. However, it is clear that there will be no more signings: there will be no new midfielders or defenders. Only a striker will arrive in January.
