Atalanta Plotting Major Moves to Make up for Possible Departures

Atalanta clinched the third straight Champions League appearance, which will allow the management to dream big in the transfer market. They want to hold onto their top players, but they are open for business and will reinvest the sums on quality targets, La Gazzetta dello Sport reports.

Robin Gosens is in high demand like last year when nobody met their €40M asking price. The Bergamaschi would be thrilled if the same happened this summer. The German fullback has been linked to Leicester, Manchester City, and Juventus. They are eyeing Federico Dimarco as a possible replacement.

The Goddess got the best out of Luis Muriel but realize this will be one of the final opportunities to cash in on the 30-year-old Colombian striker, and a €35/40M bid could lure him away. Josip Ilicic has a year left on his contract, and his future is uncertain. If they both left, the Bergamaschi would go after Jeremie Boga, whom they have coveted for years, and Rodrigo De Paul, who has a long list of rich suitors. The Argentinian international could also serve as an alternative for Marten De Roon, as they lack depth in the midfield.

Atalanta will listen to the proposals for Pierluigi Gollini since Gian Piero Gasperini is not enamored with his performances. Juan Musso, Mattia Perin, and Bartlomiej Dragowski have been short-listed to substitute him. Cristian Romero will certainly be retained from Juventus, as he is currently on a two-year loan with a €16M option to buy, while Mattia Caldara will head back to Milan. They are in advanced talks to sign Anel Ahmedhodzic from Malmoe in the back.
