Atletico Madrid's Nicolas Gaitan looks set to spark a Premier League bidding war in January. The Argentinian playmaker is desperate to leave the Wanda Metropolitano in search of game time ahead of the World Cup, and a host of top flight English clubs are, supposedly, queuing up for his signature.
The 29-year-old is frustrated in the Spanish capital at the moment. Having to settle with life on the bench, Gaitan is hardly getting a look in at Atletico, and with the winter arrivals of Vitolo and Diego Costa, that lack of game time looks set to decrease even further.
Enter the land of opportunity that is the Premier League. According to Spanish outlet AS, Premier League clubs Southampton, Everton, Crystal Palace and West Ham are eyeing up moves for the midfielder who has previously been linked with Manchester United.
