Chelsea to revive interest in Sergio Aguero if transfer ban is lifted in January

Atletico are willing to listen to offers for the 21-year-old, known to his team-mates as 'Kun', even though they claim to have turned down a massive offer from Chelsea in the summer.

'Chelsea offered £42m for Kun and Real Madrid bid £33m for Diego Forlan,' Atletico director Miguel Angel Gil Marin told the Sun.

As things stand, Chelsea will not be able to buy or sell any players for the next two transfer windows but an appeal against that has been lodged with the Court of Arbitration for Sport and will be heard before Christmas.

Chelsea were punished by Fifa for inducing Kakuta while he was a teenager to break his contract with Lens.

Atletico have made an awful start to their season both domestically and in Europe.

They recently sacked manager Abel Resino following a 4-0 loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge that left them without a point or a goal in three games in the Champions League.

At home they have fared little better and currently lie 15th in La Liga.

Aguero, who has a child with the daughter of Argentina national team coach Diego Maradona, featured in the match against Chelsea and as such could not turn out in the Champions League for another team this season.
