After an extremely active winter transfer window, Gasperini is eager to improve his squad as Atalanta are keen on signing the Empoli play-maker Nedim Bajrami.
Since joining Empoli on a permanent deal over the summer from GC Zurich following his loan-spell with the Azzurri, the 23 year-old midfield ace has been in spectacular form as he managed to score six goals and provide three assists in 29 appearances across all competitions for Empoli throughout this year’s current campaign.
As it stands, the Albanian international’s contract with Empoli is set to expire in the summer of 2024. However, according to Calciomercato, La Dea are eyeing the rising star very closely as they are preparing to potentially submit an opening bid around the region of €11M in order to lure the young starlet to the black and blue of Bergamo next season.
The club officials have been impressed with the 23 year-old’s fine run of consistency and believe that he can be the perfect replacement for Ruslan Malinovsky if the Ukrainian winger chooses to depart at the end of the season.
Atalanta view Bajrami as a vital asset that can play a crucial role in helping the Serie A giants attain enduring long-term success through his flair of creativity and his incredible dribbling skills that enable him to manoeuvre through very tight spaces on the pitch at ease.
La Dea face an immense amount of competition for the acquisition for the Empoli star-player as numerous Serie A giants such as Juventus, Milan, and Lazio are also very interested in purchasing the 23 year-old maestro ahead of next season’s campaign.
