NUNO ESPIRITO SANTO is top of Atletico Madrid’s emergency hit list to replace Diego Simeone.

The Spanish club will try to land the Wolves coach if Simeone is plucked from them by Paris Saint-Germain.

Portuguese boss Nuno, 46, has impressed with his superb work in both the Premier League and Europe.

He already had a strong reputation for his work with previous club Porto and has enhanced it at Wolves.

Atletico will fancy their chances of persuading him to jump ship as they have a line in through their connections with agent Jorge Mendes.

But fiery Simeone’s future is the key to the drama.

He is strongly fancied by PSG, who are considering a change. The French club currently have German Thomas Tuchel in charge.

Ironically, it is a huge time for 49-year-old Simeone and Tuchel, 46, in the Champions League knockout stages in the next ten days.

Atletico will be looking to finish off holders Liverpool after winning the first leg 1-0, while PSG bid to turn around a 2-1 deficit against Borussia Dortmund.

Argentinian Simeone could be tempted by the riches on offer in Paris if approached.

And that would leave Atletico taking aim at Nuno.

He has worked wonders at Wolves since arriving in 2017 and could even win the Europa League.

But the chance of regular Champions League football in Spain will be hard to turn down.
