Corriere di Bergamo reports that Giuseppe Biava is close to sealing a move to his boyhood club, Atalanta.
The 37-year-old is currently a free agent, having opted against staying at former club Lazio at the end of last season.
At the time, he explained that he made the decision in order to be able to find a club closer to home. It now seems that La Dea are set to grant him his wish.
Biava is reported to have turned down contract offers from both Chievo and Hellas Verona in recent weeks, holding out hope that the Bergamo outfit would come calling.
