Rodrigo De Paul is all set to join Atletico Madrid this summer. 

According to reliable journalist and transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano, De Paul is close to joining the Rojiblancos.

The Italian journalist says a deal in the region of €35m has been agreed, and that he can confirm the report.

Journalist Gianluigi Longari also made a similar claim last night.

The La Liga champions had opened talks with him around two weeks ago, and they are now close to securing his signature.

Romano claims that Atletico are sorting out the final details to sign the attacking midfielder.

De Paul will sign a long-term deal that will keep him at the club till 2026. Atletico are planning medicals for him.

He also added that Arsenal were never interested in him.

De Paul scored nine goals and provided nine assists in 36 Serie A games last season. He would be a superb signing for Atletico.
