Chievo favourites for Kurtic

Jasmin Kurtic could leave Atalanta in the January transfer window, with interest from Chievo, SPAL and Cagliari.

The creative midfielder turns 29 next week and arrived from Sassuolo in the summer of 2015.

With Josip Ilicic coming to the Stadio Azzurri d’Italia, the amount of playing time afforded to Kurtic has dropped.

According to Sky Sport Italia, he is seeking a move elsewhere with Chievo Verona the hot favourites.

Other alternatives within Serie A are Cagliari and newly-promoted SPAL.

Atalanta are surprisingly still fighting on three fronts this season, as they are in the Europa League Round of 32 and knocked Napoli out of the Coppa Italia to reach the Semi-Finals.

So far this term, Kurtic has contributed two goals in 19 competitive games.
