Nice in Advanced Talks to Lure Pacey Atalanta Attacker

Jeremy Boga is close to leaving Atalanta, as Nice moved with decision to acquire him. It’s not the first time he has been in this situation. He was on the brink of departing last January, but La Dea stopped his departure late.

According to Sportitalia, the Ligue 1 outfits lodged a solid bid, and the deal is progressing quickly. He mostly served as a super-sub in the past campaign, tallying 2 goals and 5 assists in 23 appearances. The Orobici purchased him from Sassuolo for €22M last summer after an initial loan.

Boga would reunite with Francesco Farioli at Nice, as the coach was Roberto De Zerbi’s assistant during his time with the Neroverdi. According to Goal, the offer amounts to €14M. La Dea is facing major uncertainty up front considering Manchester United’s threat for Rasmus Hojlund. Plus their veterans aren’t sure to stay.

Coach Gian Piero Gasperini recently said he’d like an efficient frontline next season. The Nerazzurri welcomed back Nicolò Cambiaghi and Aleksey Miranchuk following their loan spells. Moreover, they are chasing after Almeria’s El Bilal Touré.

Our Take on Boga and Nice

Other than a dominant but short-lived spurt after the last winter window, he and Gian Piero Gasperini seemingly never clicked completely. Cambiaghi is fairly similar and will better accept a rotational role.
