In the random story of the day nobody was really expecting, Romain Saïss is an alleged target for Atlético Madrid.

According to Moroccan website Lions de l’Atlas, the Wolverhampton utility player, capable of playing either in front of the defence or as a part of it, is being meticulously watched by the La Liga side ahead of the summer transfer window.

LDA claim Diego Simeone and co. are ‘analysing’ each of his performances, but they might face some competition.

Within the same article, the website reveal the Wolves player was approached by an unnamed Saudi club, giving him the chance to earn ‘four times’ what he currently pockets at Molineux.

This move is reportedly trying to be organised for the summer by the same people who sent Marouane Da Costa to Al Ittihad and Mehdi Benatia to Al Duhail.

Left on the bench in the earlier stages of the season, Saïss has been used far more often recently by Nuno Espirito Santo, despite being left out for Monday’s clash against Newcastle.

The 28-year-old has started eight of the past 13 Premier League games, scoring two goals, one in the 1-1 draw against Fulham and the other in a 3-0 win over West Ham.
