Atletico Madrid's inability to score goals is a major concern despite the team moving into the knockout rounds of the Champions League. Top of Diego Simeone's list is Edinson Cavani, who is out of contract at the end of the season and won't sign a new deal at PSG, but the French champions are happy to keep him until then.

This has forced Atleti to search for alternatives and Andrea Belotti has been sounded out.

The Torino marksman has scored 7 goals in 13 Serie A matches and a further 6 in 6 when it comes to the Europa League.  They've offered him a new deal but the striker is looking for a new challenge according to 'Tuttosport'.

Atletico will offer €35m for the striker but Torino insist he won't leave for anything less than his €100m release clause.

It appears as if Simeone's team are set to fire blanks in the transfer market too.
