Atalanta Plotting to Bring In One More New Attacker

Atalanta might continue adding to their frontline despite signing El Bilal Touré and have Emmanuel Dennis and Hugo Ekitiké on their radar. La Dea will soon finalize the departure of Rasmus Hojlund for a monstrous fee.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the Orobici have been in touch with the Nottingham Forest attacker. He joined them from Watford for €15M last summer. He recorded 2 goals and 3 assists in 25 appearances. He had more success at his previous stop.

On top of Dennis, Atalanta laid eyes on Ekitiké, although it could be hard to lure him away from PSG, L’Eco di Bergamo relays (via Goal). He had a so-so season, logging 4 goals and 4 assists in 32 matches after completing a €25M move from Reims.

The Ligue 1 giants would ask for a robust sum if they were to part ways with him. Moreover, new coach Luis Enrique is reportedly a fan of the youngster. He could demand to keep ahold of him, especially considering the uncertainty about the future of their other strikers.

Our Take on Atalanta, Dennis, and Ekitiké

The Nerazzurri will fill their coffers, but they already completed a large investment for their standards, and they’ll probably eye cheaper ones next. They were perhaps plotting to sell Duvan Zapata and/or Luis Muriel rather than Hojlund. It’ll be interesting to see whether the turn of events will change their plans. Another purchase hinges on the departures too.
