The Argentine coach has definitely decided that he no longer wants to rely on the Portuguese forward and instead requests the hiring of a central attacker with a profile of a supporting striker. The idea is to replace the position left by the former Benfica player.
The first phase of Cholo Simeone’s plan has been fulfilled, as Atlético managed to part ways with Joao Félix. Now comes the second phase, which is to find his replacement. To finish this step, the Argentine coach has already told the Atlético sporting director that he needs a central forward who can also play as a supporting striker. However, this player must also have offensive power and be a great complement to Morata.
Andrea Berta got to work, and it was not difficult for him, as he already had a candidate’s name on his agenda for a long time. It is Luis Ezequiel Ávila Boselli, better known as Chimy Ávila. The Argentine striker is the offensive reference of CA Osasuna, and although he still has several years left on his contract there, he has already indicated that he wants to leave El Sadar.
Chimy Ávila wants to be Joao Félix’s replacement and the new protégé of Cholo Simeone. For the Argentine forward, Diego Simeone has always been one of the best coaches in the world at the red and white club. Now that he has the opportunity to be under his orders, he has no doubt that he will accept an offer from the colchonero house. Moreover, this is the opportunity that the 29-year-old striker has been waiting for to make a leap in quality.
Ávila is very grateful to the Navarrese team’s management, staff, and fans for the support he received when he was seriously injured. But he also knows that his future is important, and he knows that moving from Osasuna to Atlético is a big step in his sports career. With his arrival in Cholo Simeone’s squad, his first international call-up would also be near.
Like any good footballer in the elite, Chimy Ávila dreams of wearing the albiceleste jersey, and his move to the Madrid team would bring him closer. In addition to being on one of the best teams not only in Spain but also in Europe, he would have good references from who could be the coach of the Argentine National Team in the future.
For the moment, the environment of the former Huesca attacker is waiting for an offer from Atlético and also has faith that Osasuna will be consistent with the player’s desire. His base price in the market is 10 million euros, and his clause is 30 million euros. The remaining time on his contractual obligation is fixed until 2026.
