Atalanta ask Villa for Gollini

Atalanta send Marco Sportiello to Fiorentina and are in advanced talks to take Pierluigi Gollini from Aston Villa.

It is widely reported this evening that Sportiello has agreed an 18-month loan in Florence.

The goalkeeper is expected to undergo his medical tomorrow or on Friday.

According to Sky Sport Italia, his replacement will likely be Gollini, who is in advanced negotiations to leave Aston Villa on loan.

The 21-year-old is already well-travelled, playing for Manchester United’s youth team, Verona and was sold to Villa for €5m in July 2016.
