Atalanta on Boakye and Bonaventura

Atalanta confirm the arrival of Richmond Boakye and “many proposals from abroad” for Giacomo Bonaventura.

Director general Pierpaolo Marino spoke to Radio Sportiva and outlined some of their activity on the market.

“Many proposals have arrived from abroad for Bonaventura. If the situations that move forward are liked by Giacomo and the club, then we promised to reach an agreement together.

“We made that pledge when we confirmed him for another season in Bergamo last year. However, the situations haven’t matured to that degree, but there is a lot of interest around Bonaventura.”

Atalanta have agreed terms with 21-year-old Ghanaian striker Boakye, who is co-owned between Juventus and Genoa.

“We just need to sign the paperwork, the lad has completed his medical and we can practically make it official, even if the contracts will be deposited on Monday.

“We signed him in a co-ownership deal, taking over Genoa’s share.”

Although new co-ownership agreements are banned from this season, players can still have their existing scenarios renewed for one more year.

Boakye spent last season on loan at Spanish club Elche, scoring six goals in 30 Liga games.
