With Etrit Berisha locking down Atalanta’s starting spot, Sportiello could be on the way out.
Berisha was acquired on a loan to buy in the summer by Atalanta and usurped Sportiello’s starting role.
Gasperini changed goalkeepers early in the season and stuck with the Albanian until he tore his meniscus. Now, he’s fit and it seems the Italian will be heading back to the bench.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reports Sportiello’s time in Bergamo could be coming to an end. Lazio have some bargaining power and would like to bring him in to replace the aging Marchetti.
What is likely to happen is Atalanta will buy out Berisha for a lower fee and Lazio will acquire Sportiello. The player has reportedly agreed to personal terms on a switch.
Berisha in, Sportiello out for Atalanta.
