    Sports Direct News' Jon Rogers says that Atletico Madrid are willing to lure the Mexican striker to Estadio Vicente Calderon.

    The Spanish club's interest comes as a result of Diego Costa's transfer rumours, as Bleacher Report's own Ed Dove counts here.

    This is not the first time that Los Colchoneros have tracked Chicharito. In 2012 The Daily Mirror reported that he could be Radamel Falcao's replacement.

    The Sun (h/t 101 Great Goals) reports that Hernandez is fed up with not playing. His concern comes five months before the World Cup.

    The Mexican striker believes he needs as many minutes as he can get to be ready for Brazil 2014.

    However, Mexican website MedioTiempo.com organized a Twitcam session with El Tri coach Miguel Herrera during which he acknowledged that Hernandez might not start for his club either:

    I don’t know if he (Hernandez) will be a starter, but I see him as an important player, he comes in for five minutes and scores. His team doesn't win, but he shows the attitude of a player who wants to start with his club.

    The Daily Mirror's Alan Nixon and Tom Hopkinson suggest that Monaco have been eyeing Chicharito and he could join the French club as a replacement for Radamel Falcao, who injured his anterior cruciate ligament last week.
