Joakim Maehle had arrived in Bergamo in January 2021, replacing Timothy Castagne who left Atalanta for Leicester City four months earlier. A right flanker who can also act on the left lane of the field, during the last preseason friendlies Gian Piero Gasperini had even tried him out in an unprecedented midfield inside position. For the sale of the Dane, the Bergamo club will collect about 13 million euros.
