Atlético Madrid have agreed personal terms with Girona forward Artem Dovbyk as the club look to sign the forward.

Dovbyk ended the 2023-24 campaign as La Liga’s leading scorer, becoming the first non-Barcelona to Real Madrid player to win the Pichichi Award since Diego Forland in 2008/09, to fire Girona to a third-place finish and Champions League qualification.

After arriving from Dnipro in a €7m deal, Dovbyk scored 24 league goals, including a hat-trick on the final weekend to overhaul Alexander Sorloth as the league’s leading scorer.

Sky are reporting that Atletico have agreed personal terms with Dovbyk ahead of a potential move this summer, as the Spanish side prepare to activate his €40m release clause.

Diego Simeone wants to sign a striker with Memphis Depay departing on a free transfer and Atleti are confident of beating Napoli in the race to sign Dovbyk.

The Ukraine international, who has been linked with a Premier League move in recent days, will represent his nation at Euro 2024 this summer and has scored nine goals in 27 appearances for the national team.
