Atalanta and Torino Trying to Put Together Megadeal

Atalanta and Torino are discussing a bombastic operation that could see Alessandro Buongiorno, Duvan Zapata, Brandon Soppy, and Aleksej Miranchuk switch sides. La Dea is very interested in the budding center-back. The Granata slapped a lofty price tag on him, but they are enticed by the possibility of getting the striker.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the total value of the deal will be €25/30M. The Bergamaschi offered €17M plus their center-forward and the youngster on loan with an €8M option to buy. The talks between sides are at a good point. Then, they’ll have to reach an agreement with all the agents.

Buongiorno and Zapata are the centerpieces of the negotiation between Atalanta and Torino. According to Tuttomercatoweb, the discussions between the entourage of the Colombian international and the Granata represent the main hurdle. His wages are higher than their €2M cap.

Still, the club could make an exception and concur on a three-year, €2.7M salary. He would have earned as much had he transferred to Roma. He has accepted the destination. Instead, Miranchuk probably won’t be involved directly but is still likely to move back on loan.

Our Take on Atalanta, Torino, Zapata, and Buongiorno

It’s a big sacrifice for the Granata, but they would get three useful players and a pretty sizeable sum for their captain-in-waiting. Plus, they’d have the funds to replace him aptly.
