One yes has already come, ringing, the other is getting closer.

Atalanta is increasingly ready to embrace Gianluca Scamacca and Charles De Ketelaere. Saturday saw important steps on the two negotiations destined to revolutionize the attack at Gian Piero Gasperini’s disposal for the upcoming Serie A season and the assault on the Europa League and Coppa Italia.

By now, everything is practically done for the arrival of Scamacca, who will be bought out by West Ham for 25 million euros plus 5 million in bonuses. The striker landed in Rome on Saturday to undergo medical examinations at Villa Stuart. “I am very happy to be back in Italy. Now we are going for the visits. I am very ready, we will see each other on Monday. In the meantime I just say forza Atalanta,” were his few words collected by the ‘Gazzetta dello Sport,’ and uttered with a beaming smile.

On the other hand, the one who is getting closer and closer to the long-awaited yes to Atalanta is Charles De Ketelaere, the last piece before his move to the Nerazzurri after the deal that Milan already accepted. On Saturday evening ‘Sky Sport’ confirmed that the Belgian’s assent is now imminent. His move to Bergamo would take place through the onerous loan formula on the basis of €3 million, with a right of redemption set at €23 million.

On the same day that Manchester United made official the purchase of Rasmus Hojlund, therefore, Atalanta’s attack continues to change face. But it is not over yet: after the arrival also of El Bilal Touré from Almeria, in fact, something will still move on the disposals front as well. Ready to say goodbye to the two Colombians: on Duvan Zapata the Monza is strong, for Luis Muriel a future in Saudi Arabia could be envisaged.
