Atalanta and Juventus Cooking Up Some More Transfers

Atalanta director Giovanni Sartori attended the recent match between Juventus and Genoa sitting next to the Bianconeri management. The two teams have frequently done business together in the recent past and might arrange some deals in January too, suggests.

The Bergamaschi are looking for a new attacker as they will likely move on from Aleksey Miranchuk. They have zeroed in on Jeremie Boga. The money potentially coming from qualifying to the next stage of Champions League would boost their pursuit. Instead, Dejan Kulusevski could be a fallback option on a loan with option to buy.

On the other hand, the Swedish starlet has found some continuity after the latest tactical tweak by Massimiliano Allegri. Juventus would have to replace him properly if he left. And they would be looking to get a decent sum, at least €35M, to finance other additions. The Bianconeri signed the 21-year-old from Atalanta a year ago for such fee, plus €9M potential add-ons.

The Bergamaschi will have to manage without Robin Gosens for a few more weeks. The German fullback had a setback in his recovery and headed to his home country to rehab. His return is now up in the air. La Dea might bring in somebody else on the left wing, and they already pursued Luca Pellegrini in the past. He has also gotten some run, at the expense of Alex Sandro, in recent fixtures. Moreover, both Atalanta and Juventus scouted Genoa’s revelation Andrea Cambiaso very attentively Sunday.
