Atletico's wishlist includes United and Liverpool targets – report

Atletico Madrid

Diego Simeone has Sevilla duo Alberto Moreno and Ivan Rakitic in his sights, who are both admired by Premier League clubs.

Atletico Madrid are believed to be ready to battle Premier League sides Manchester United and Liverpool for a number of Spanish-based targets this summer.

The Vicente Calderon outfit have been linked with Alberto Moreno and Ivan Rakitic in El Desmarque.

Left-back Moreno has been mentioned as a possible target for Manchester United, who are in the market for a defender to replace the ageing Patrice Evra.

Napoli are thought to have had a bid for the forward-thinking full-back rejected in the January transfer window, but with moves for Leighton Baines and Fabio Coentrao running ashore, United are also keeping tabs on Moreno.

Meanwhile, Rakitic has been reported as a possible new signing for United, Chelsea and Liverpool, with the Croatia international in stunning form this season.

The eastern European playmaker has been racking up the goals and assists this term, with suitors ready to pounce for the star.

Sevilla have a track record of selling their prize assets, with the likes of Alvaro Negredo, Jesus Navas and Gary Medel leaving the club in the summer.

Will Moreno and Rakitic end up at Atletico?
