Atletico Madrid has reinforced its attack with Adrian Lopez a day after the Spanish player won a legal dispute to break with his former club Deportivo La Coruna.

Atletico Madrid new signing Adrian Lopez

Lopez said Tuesday that his goal is to help Atletico “reach the top in all the competitions we participate in.”

Earlier this summer, Lopez was named the best player of Spain’s under-21 European Championship winning side with his tournament-leading five goals.

The young striker will possibly have to replace Argentine standout Sergio Aguero, who has said he wants to leave the club.

Deportivo, which was relegated last season, had tried to exercise an option to renew Lopez against his wishes, but a judge ruled in favor of the player.
