Atlético de Madrid have done very well in the Spanish League so far this season and will be one of the favorites to win the title.
Diego Simeone’s men are currently at the top of the table with 38 points from 15 games.
His closest rival, Real Madrid, is two points from drift after having played two more games.
Atlético de Madrid expect to get even further away from their rivals in the city in the coming weeks and a smart addition in January could make a big difference for them during the second half of the season.
The list of games during the second half of the season will be much more congested and teams will need more options at their disposal.
Key areas that need strengthening
Atlético de Madrid could certainly use some depth in their attack and it will be interesting to see if Simeone decides to bring in someone this month.
Diego Costa’s contract has been mutually terminated and the Spanish team could use another striker. Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud has been linked with a play by the Wanda Metropolitano recently.
The Frenchman has done very well when he had the opportunity at Chelsea this season and also showed his quality in the Champions League earlier this season. His experience will also be vital for Atlético de Madrid.
The 34-year-old has nine goals so far this season and has only started six games for the Blues.
Defender Kieran Trippier has been linked with a return to the Premier League. The player was recently sanctioned for violating FIFA’s betting rules and it remains to be seen how that will affect his future.
