The FC Barcelona evening fired at the nightmare this Wednesday on the lawn of Benfica. The lisbotes did only one bite of the men of Ronald Koeman (3-0) , who still did not take any points, nor corded the slightest strike in two champions league games. A new rout that has yet fueled the rumors of a departure from the Dutch technician.

Marca reported Wednesday morning that Atlético Madrid are looking into signing KRC Genk star Paul Onuachu within the next two transfer windows. Onuachu, a 6-foot-7-inch forward from Nigeria, scored 33 goals in the Jupiler Pro League last year and has produced at an even better rate thus far in 2021/22. The 27-year-old joined Genk from FC Midtjylland in 2019, and he has scored three goals in 15 appearances for Nigeria.

Onuachu, a 6-foot-7-inch forward from Nigeria, scored 33 goals in the Jupiler Pro League last year and has produced at an even better rate thus far in 2021/22. Onuachu’s nine goals from nine games are second in the league, and he’s rung up an impressive 0.85 open play goals per 90 this season.

The 27-year-old joined Genk from FC Midtjylland in 2019, and he has scored three goals in 15 appearances for Nigeria.

Marca claims that a few teams are interested in Onuachu and Atlético sporting director Andrea Berta has been quoted a fee of roughly €20 million for the player, whose contract runs until 2024. Last summer, Berta attempted to sign Fiorentina forward Dušan Vlahović, but the Serie A side refused Atlético’s €60 million bid. Therefore, this transfer would be seen as a relatively “low-cost” option for the club as it seeks even more forward depth.

Report : Atletico Madrid Mulls Move for Arsenal Target Nicolas Tagliafico. Nicolas Tagliafico is the latest Ajax player to be linked with a move to Spain, with Atletico Madrid reportedly preparing a move for the Argentine defender. Ajax's impressive performances in the Champions League have seen many of their star players linked with big money transfers and Tagliafico's name is the latest to show up on the rumor mill.

Portsmouth are weighing up a move for Atletico Madrid midfielder Thiago Motta but they are likely to face competition from Everton for the star 's signature. They both have limited budgets and would be prepared to take a chance on him should he prove he is fit enough for the Barclays Premier League . Both clubs have also been offered former Arsenal midfielder Edu but opted against a deal due to concerns over his fitness.

One explanation for Atleti’s potential move for Onuachu could be that Diego Simeone does not view new arrival Matheus Cunha as a striker, but rather as an attacking midfielder. Cholo has also used Ángel Correa as a winger again early this season, while Luis Suárez remains the only pure number nine in the squad. Suárez’s contract expires next summer, and it’s not yet known whether he’ll renew, so the rojiblancos have to keep their options open to some degree.

Still, interest in signing yet another forward when the league champions already have five in the squad doesn’t seem to make much sense — even for a player with Onuachu’s goalscoring record.
