Diego Simeone does not need the Croat.

Atletico would like to part with 31-year-old Croatian striker Nikola Kalinic. He is expected to leave the team this summer.

According to transfermarketweb.com, referring to Spanish sources, Bayer Leverkusen, Eintracht Frankfurt and Schalke 04 are the main contenders for the forward, and there are also offers from the United Arab Emirates.

Recall that Kalinic moved to Atletico from Milan last summer. Nikola has played 21 matches and scored 4 goals in the current season.

However, earlier it became known that Atletico proposed Sevilla to sign striker Nikola Kalinic in order to unload the payroll list for Chelsea’s striker Alvaro Morata.

But, Sevilla, who previously announced Munir’s transfer, refused to sign Kalinic.
