Atalanta Torn Between Juventus and Spezia Wing Talents

Atalanta have zeroed in on two names to bolster their flank, Samuel Iling and Emil Holm. The former has a higher valuation. However, before making an addition, they need to part ways with a few players, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.

In particular, La Dea wishes to offload Luis Muriel, Caleb Okoli, Nicolò Cambiaghi, Nadir Zortea, Brandon Soppy, and Aleksey Miranchuk. The Colombian has been linked to Monza. Torino are trying to bring back the attacker on a permanent deal. Instead, the Italian winger will head back to Empoli.

Once they trim their squad, Atalanta will accelerate for either Iling or Holm. Juventus have set a €20M price tag for their youngster. Spezia have raised their demands for the Swede, pitting the Bergamaschi and the Old Lady against each other. They ask for €15M, but a loan with a €12M obligation to buy might suffice, Corriere dello Sport informs (via Tuttomercatoweb).

Our Take on Atalanta, Holm, and Iling

The English youngster might have a higher ceiling, but he’s more of a work in progress, and the wingback position might not be ideal for him, as he’s more offensive-minded. Gian Piero Gasperini must not have liked what he saw from Mitchel Bakker if they are looking for another man there, but most of their options are versatile.
