Atalanta Line Up Two Signings from Verona and Almeria

Atalanta missed out on Rodrigo Becao, who will join Fenerbahce, but are close to Isak Hien and El Bilal Touré. They will accelerate their pursuits once they sell at least one defender. Merih Demiral has been excluded from their pre-season retreat because he’s on his way out, Alfredo Pedullà informs.

The Turk has other proposals but keeps waiting for Inter. He would have joined in January had Milan Skriniar departed sooner. It’s unclear whether they will sign another option after Yann Aurel Bisseck and Juan Cuadrado. Instead, José-Luis Palomino is about to transfer to Cagliari.

As is the case for Hien, Atalanta need one of their current contributors to leave to move for Touré vigorously. The entire brass agrees on his potential. Duvan Zapata and Luis Muriel might both leave. Instead, Manchester United are looming for Rasmus Hojlund.

The Dane is top of the list for the Red Devils, also because of his low wages. PSG’s Hugo Ekitiké has been linked to La Dea, but he’s not a target at this stage.

Our Take on Atalanta, Hien, and Touré

The Verona defender would be a more typical purchase than Becao. They were quick to address their left flank, while they are taking their time in other roles, where they can upgrade but already have a few pieces in place. They have to hope the delays won’t cost them juicy targets.
