The Frenchman is strongly expected to leave La Rosaleda this summer, with Atleti believed to be in pole position to capture his services.
However, L’Equipe suggest that they may face competition from the player’s home country in the shape of former Real Socieadad coach Philippe Montanier’s new team.
Rennes have reportedly inquired after the 29-year-old this summer and whilst seen as keen to try and activate a deal, apparently would need Toulalan to drop his wage demands.
Former Barcelona defender Eric Abidal is reportedly a step away from agreeing a deal to sign on at Monaco this summer.
The Frenchman, who last season returned to the game after recovering from a liver transplant, was released by Barca in May, after six years at the Camp Nou.
Determining his intention to keep playing, the 33-year-old has been linked with Paris Saint-Germain in recent weeks, but most recently with newly promoted Monaco.
Following on from recent reports that he had met with the principality outfit’s billionaire owner Dmitry Rybolovlev last week, Abidal’s agent has asserted that a deal is close to completion.
“We hope to finalise an agreement during the next week,” David Venditelli has told reporters today.
Alejandro Pozuelo looks set to follow Jose Canas out of Real Betis and to Premier League side Swansea City this summer.
Reports in Spain are that Michael Laudrup’s side have agreed a €500,000 (£425,000) fee with Betis for the winger’s transfer this summer, having previously failed to attempts to sign him in January.
It is understood that the 21-year-old has also agreed an initial three-year contract with Swansea, with the option in place for a fourth.
Reports are that the Premier League side, who also picked up Canas on a Bosman from the Benito Villamarin this summer, could confirm the deal’s completion within the day.
