Atalanta will complete Denis deal

The agent of German Denis expects Atalanta to quickly take up their option to sign him from Udinese in the summer.

The Argentine joined the Bergamo boys on loan at the start of this term and he has responded with 12 goals in 16 Serie A games.

“He’s settled in well at Atalanta,” representative Leo Rodriguez told Radio Kiss Kiss. “They, as a club, are counting on him.

“He’s having a great season and Atalanta have faith in him. I think the club will move to sign him outright in June.”

Denis, formerly of Napoli, is currently the Serie A top scorer – one goal clear of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The two men will face each other on Sunday when Atalanta will host Milan in Serie A.
