Spurs striker Sergio Aguero is reportedly on the verge of an Atletico Madrid exit.

The Argentine international forward has been heavily linked with a number of clubs across Europe, with Tottenham Hotspur thought to be leading the Barclays Premier League chase for the player.

Spanish reports suggest that Los Colchoneros may have to sell the player to balance their books, despite claims that they rejected a £30 million move from Spurs on deadline day in the January transfer window.

Aguero began his career at Independiente before making a €23 million move to Atletico back in 2006. Prolific in his four and a half years at the Vicente Calderón Stadium, the striker is potentially poised for a move away from La Liga.

“In the summer I will do my job, whether he moves to England or Spain, or stays with Atletico Madrid is not decided yet. But the time will come,“ Bruno Satin told Sport.co.uk.

"There is nothing special with Tottenham Hotspur, or any other English club at this moment in time.”


Harry Redknapp is thought to be in the market for another striker, with Diego Forlan also linked with a move to White Hart Lane.

Fernando Llorente and Giuseppe Rossi have also been linked with a Spurs switch in recent times, while Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is also thought to be on the Tottenham Hotspur radar.

With money to spend in north London following additional revenue generated from Champions League football, Spurs are set to spend in the summer - but which striker will emerge as the club's top target.
