Atletico Madrid striker Mario Mandzukic is reportedly set to leave the Vicente Calderon in the summer after his picture was removed from the club store.

According to Tutto Mercato Web, the Croatian striker has played his last game for the Spanish capital club after his picture in their super store was replaced by that of winger Arda Turan.

Mandzukic only joined Atletico last summer after being allowed to leave by Bayern Munich and had an impressive debut campaign scoring 12 goals and providing five assists in 28 appearances in the league.

But he has been over shadowed by French summer recruit Antoine Griezmann, who scored 22 goals in 37 appearances, and therefore the club are willing to listen to offers for the striker.

The report claims that AC Milan have shown interest in taking the forward to San Siro, but will face competition from some of the Premier League big guns, who are also keen on the Croatian's services.

According to the Liverpool Echo, the Reds are interested in signing the striker as Brendan Rodgers looks to revamp his forward line after a miserable 2014/15 campaign.

Liverpool are desperate to sign top quality forwards to challenge Daniel Sturridge after last summer's arrivals Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert failed to live up to expectations, with the duo managing just three goals between them in the league all season.

However, the Merseyside club will face stiff competition for the Croatian international's signature as Premier League rivals Tottenham and Arsenal are also said to be interested in the player's signature.

The north London clubs are also actively in the market for new strikers and the Gunners particularly could hold the advantage as they can offer Champions League football, while Spurs and Liverpool can only offer the Europa League.
