Nicolas Gaitan is wanted by clubs in England,including Spurs, and will ‘undoubtedly leave’ Atletico Madrid in January, according to his agent.

An article on talkSPORT says the midfielder is struggling to break into the first team at Wanda Metropolitano and he is desperate for more game time ahead of next summer’s World Cup in Russia.

The article says that Manchester United and Spurs were linked with the Argentina international back in January and it adds we could swoop for him again this time around.

It goes on to say Gaitan’s agent, Jose Iribarren, has confirmed clubs from England are tracking Gaitan and a move abroad is on the cards.
“I can tell you English clubs are interested,” Iribarren told Foot Mercato.
“Yes, he’ll undoubtedly leave Atletico in January. He has a lot of concrete offers. Nicolas was an important player when he played in Argentina, at Benfica and with the national team.

He added; “He can’t continue in these conditions. If he can’t play a string of matches, nor win the coach’s trust. A player wants to play. We’re going to see with Atletico which solution we can find.”
