Atalanta Facing Strong Competition for Croatian Star

Inter and especially Atalanta tried to purchase Borna Sosa last summer, but he wasn’t eager to transfer with the World Cup just around the corner. La Dea is still after the Stuttgart winger, but Newcastle might upset the Italian suitors with a sizeable bid, Corriere dello Sport informs.

The left-back has fared well in Qatar, and his price tag has shot up to €20M. Further Premier League sides are keeping tabs on him, which might increase it, making him an elusive target for the Serie A sides.

Inter reportedly eyed Borna Sosa to replace Robin Gosens, whom they didn’t manage to sell, while Atalanta wanted bolster their flanks. The Croatian star revealed he turned down the Bergamaschi in a recent interview with L’Equipe.

“I received an offer from them, but I decided to stay at Stuttgart. I’ve been playing with them for five years, and I’m not in a rush to switch teams. Every player wants to progress in their career, and I’m sure that will be the case for me as well after the World Cup.”

The latest reports indicate that La Beneamata might stand pat in January, while the Orobici remain very keen since their situation on the wings is fluid.

Our Take on Borna Sosa, Inter, and Atalanta

He’s been a highly productive for a few years, and he’d be a slam-dunk addition for any team, especially those playing with 3-5-2 or similar. However, Italian outfits might have missed their window, as they can’t compete when numbers get too high. La Dea opened their wallet for Rasmus Hojlund, and it would be quite the statement if they managed to go toe-to-toe with Premier League powerhouses.
