Atalanta 'want €30m for Cristante'

Atalanta have reportedly started the bidding for wantaway midfielder Bryan Cristante at €30m.

According to Tuttosport, Atalanta are looking to make a huge profit on Cristante this summer as they prepare to activate their €4m purchase option for the 23-year-old, who is owned by Benfica.

Inter and Juventus have both been linked with the Milan youth product, but the newspaper notes there is interest from the Premier League, with Arsenal, Liverpool, Watford and West Ham United also keen.

Nonetheless, Cristante is not expected to come cheap as Tuttosport concludes the Orobici are hoping to recoup €30m.
