Atletico Madrid’s €12m Offer for 18-Year-Old Midfielder Rejected, Barcelona Also Interested

Introduction to this article:
Atletico Madrid’s pursuit of a new midfielder has intensified as they seek a younger profile to join their squad. One player catching their eye is 18-year-old Arthur Vermeeren, a highly sought-after prospect who has attracted interest from several top clubs. Atleti recently made an offer for Vermeeren, but it was rejected as they seek to make a significant profit from his sale.

Atletico Madrid’s Pursuit of Arthur Vermeeren

Atletico Madrid is on the hunt for a new midfielder, and their focus has shifted to acquiring a younger player to join their ranks. With several players already linked to the club, one name that has emerged as a potential target is Arthur Vermeeren, an 18-year-old prospect with a bright future ahead.

Atleti’s Offer and Antwerp’s Response

Belgian media outlet Het Laatste Nieuws has reported that Atletico Madrid submitted an initial offer for Vermeeren, believed to be around €12m. However, Royal Antwerp, the club currently holding the player’s rights, have rejected this offer and are holding out for a larger sum of €30m in order to approve a potential sale.

Potential Implications for Atletico Madrid

The asking price set by Royal Antwerp may present a challenge for Atletico Madrid, as it could potentially rule out a deal for Vermeeren during this summer transfer window. However, if the club is able to offload players such as Angel Correa and secure additional funds before the transfer deadline, they may re-enter the bidding for the young midfielder.
