Atalanta Confident About Keeping Their Best Players

The Atalanta stars have been linked to major clubs, but each negotiation hasn’t progressed much past early inquiries and opening bids. Manchester United could increase their proposal for Rasmus Hojlund after bagging André Onana, but his price tag is very high.

According to Prima Bergamo, that’s the case also for Teun Koopmeiners, who’s a target for Juventus and Napoli, and Giorgio Scalvini, whom the Partenopei want to replace Kim Min-Jae. There’s nothing advanced, and their valuations might ultimately scare off the suitors for the whole summer. La Dea has opened talks to extend the contract of the Dutchman.

Atalanta will complete some sales to reduce the squad. However, they’d need to be blown away by a large offer to sell one of their core players. Once they acquire Rodrigo Becao or a different defender, they’ll part ways with José-Luis Palomino, Merih Demiral, or Caleb Okoli.

They are unlikely to keep any of their outcasts returning from loans: Pierluigi Gollini, Nadir Zortea, Viktor Kovalenko, and Aleksey Miranchuk.

Among the Atalanta regulars, Joakim Maehle is potentially available following the additions of Mitchell Bakker and Sead Kolasinac. Duvan Zapata and Luis Muriel don’t have long-term contracts, and their futures hinge on Hojlund. The Orobici have earmarked El Bilal Touré to replenish their frontline.
