Atletico Madrid is set to sign Valencia’s Daniel Wass as a replacement for Kieran Trippier.
Trippier was a key part of Atletico Madrid’s title-winning season of last, but he decided to move back to England for personal reasons where he was unveiled by Newcastle United last week.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Alteli wants to invest the €15million they collected from the sale of the Englishman on Wass who is capable of playing as a midfielder and a wing-back and still slot at Trippier’s position nicely.

Wass who has been with Valencia since 2018 is out of contract this summer and has seriously been linked with a move away from the club and with Valencia keen to reduce their wage bill, they are open to selling the player this month.
Apart from Valencia, the player has Laliga experience with Celta Vigo and Diego Simeone feels that he would be a good addition for his side as they struggle to close the gap between them and arch-rivals and leaders Real Madrid.
