Arsenal and Man United in colossal transfer tussle to land potent Atletico Madrid forward (not Griezmann)


While Saul Niguez and Antoine Griezmann are the Atletico Madrid names most often linked with huge moves to the Premier League, the more eagle eyed bunch of punters in tonight have spotted another name. 

According to talkSPORT, both Arsenal and Manchester United enter the race to land striker Luciano Vietto this summer, who has struggled since his move from Villarreal last summer.

The likes of Barcelona, Valencia and both Milan giants are also understood to be interested in the 22-year old, who notched an impressive 18 goals for the Yellow Submarine prior to his move to the Spanish capital.

Having been snubbed by Jamie Vardy, Gunners chief Arsene Wenger is understood to be considering the 22-year old as an alternative as he bids to add more striking power to his ranks.

United, meanwhile, are still awaiting a decision from Zlatan Ibrahimovic and reportedly take a similar view to their North London rivals, viewing the star as a potential alternative.

Has Vietto really done enough to earn himself another big move?
