Busy day on the market for the Orobici.

After loaning away Marco Sportiello and acquiring Pierluigi Gollini, Atalanta now are focusing on signing another midfielder.

The club is on the market for a reinforcement who fits the profile of Gagliardini.

Loaned out Simone Emmanuello who’s currently playing for Pro Vercelli is an option. The Juventus/Atalanta youth product has the same age as Gagliardini and plays the same role and style. According to Gianluca Di Marzio, this is a concrete option.

The other is Milan youth academy product Bryan Cristante, who since his failed move to Benfica has moved from one Serie A basement dweller to another. Currently at Pescara, Atalanta could move to make an offer to his parent club, Benfica and take him in January. His agent, Giuseppe Riso, represents countless Atalanta players and is another viable option.
