The agent of Athletico Madrid defender Diego Godin says the English giants have been targeting his client

Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool have been chasing Athletico Madrid defender Diego Godin, according to his agent.

The 25-year-old was part of Uruguay’s Copa America winning side during the summer and has impressed for both club and country, drawing the attention of Europe’s elite clubs.

“As I said, Godin is talked about a lot in England, there are clubs like Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal who are also quite careful about certain players,” his agent, Diego Heredia Triguero told Calciomercato.com.

“I’ve spoken a little to all of them. But real negotiations have not yet been launched.”

He is more likely to join Liverpool or Chelsea as Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has said he is not looking to improve his squad in the January transfer window.
