Bayer Leverkusen interested in Santiago Arias (Atlético Madrid)

Kicker report tonight that Bayer Leverkusen are interested in signing 28-year-old Colombian right-back Santiago Arias from Atlético Madrid.

Atlético sporting director Andrea Berta has confirmed the Spanish club are talking to AS Roma, Everton and PSG but not Bayer Leverkusen. As Kicker suggest, this could be a bluff in the negotiations with Bayer.

Berta has stated that Atlético would be open to selling Arias, who is expected to leave on loan with an obligation to buy.
