Atalanta Preparing for Summer Overhaul of Their Roster

Atalanta will need to finish the season strong in order to keep playing in Europe, and they are poised for significant changes in the summer. Gian Piero Gasperini hinted that he would need to talk with the new co-owners. However, it would be a shocker if he did not stay at the helm.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the coach is already planning the next transfer market moves with Lee Congerton, who recently joined the management from Leicester City. Current sporting director Giovanni Sartori is on his way out. La Dea would go after Verona’s executive Tony D’Amico if they decided to hire another Italian official.

Atalanta are ready to revamp the squad in the summer window, cashing in on a few players that have spent multiple seasons in Bergamo. Luis Muriel is more likely to depart than Duvan Zapata. Considering his age, the club would settle for €15-20M. The top Italian teams have him on their radar if they need a backup striker, primarily Juventus. He has suitors abroad too. Josip Ilicic has another year on his contract. The team will look to sort out his situation since he has not featured in months.

Mario Pasalic and Hans Hateboer are expendable, should decent offers arrive for them. The front office wishes to offload Aleksey Miranchuk. The linchpins of the new squad will be the recently acquired Merih Demiral, Teun Koopmeiners, Jeremie Boga, and Giorgio Scalvini, who has broken out this season. They plan to keep a few youngsters that have been thriving on loan.
