Edison Cavani to join Atlético Madrid in January

Atlético Madrid are struggling for regular goals but Diego Simeone is keen to address the problem.

Atlético have only scored 20 goals in 18 LaLiga matches this season thanks to Alvaro Morata’s seven strikes.

But Simeone’s solution seems to be coming from France, where a Paris Saint-Germain star has fallen down the pecking order

Uruguayan and PSG striker Edinson Cavani is close to joining Atlético Madrid in January, according to AS.

Cavani has reportedly agreed a two-and-a-half-year contract with Atlético, while PSG would prefer to keep the 32-year-old until the end of the season.

The soon-to-be free agent has found himself behind loanee Mauro Icardi, Kylian Mbappé and Neymar this season.

Signing Cavani in the January transfer window could force Atlético to sell due to their salary-limit issue, with Thomas Lemar a possible casualty.
