The former Juventus and Everton player is expected to be a major boost for Atlético’s attack, which has lost Luis Suárez and Antoine Griezmann this summer. Kean is a fast and powerful striker who can score goals. He is also able to play on either wing of the attack.
Kean’s arrival is a good news for Atlético, which is looking to strengthen for the season ahead. The Madrid club is aiming to win the Champions League.
