Atletico Madrid are taking Moussa Dembele on-loan from Lyon this month.

Dembele is arriving to fill the void left by Diego Costa's release from his contract.

The France striker will join Atletico on a six-month loan for €1.6m with a permanent option - which is not mandatory. Atletico can sign Dembele for €35m in June.

Dembele scored 24 goals last season and 23 the previous one. Although in the current one he has not entered into Rudi García's plans, accumulating one goal in the 670 minutes he has played in 16 games.

But Atleti is confident that coach Diego Simeone can recover his highest scoring version.
