Atalanta confirm Defrel interest

Atalanta President Antonio Percassi confirmed Bryan Cristante will “probably” leave and they are tracking Roma’s Gregoire Defrel.

Midfielder Cristante’s agent said a decision should be made next week, with Roma, Juventus, Inter, Napoli and Lazio interested.

“Cristante will probably be leaving this summer,” Percassi told Sky Sport Italia.

“We’ve got some interesting players returning from loan, such as Luca Valzania and Matteo Pessina, while Musa Barrow is more than just promising now and even scored for Gambia on international duty.”

Percassi was asked about Atalanta’s interest in Roma winger Defrel, who has struggled since his move from Sassuolo.

“Defrel is one of the three or four players we are tracking between defence, midfield and attack, but we know it’s only June, so we’ll intervene where it is most necessary.”
