Atalanta will exercise their €15m option to buy Chelsea midfielder Mario Pasalic, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
Pasalic joined Atalanta on an initial season-long loan last summer and went on to play 42 times, scoring eight goals, providing six assists and helping the Dea qualify for the Champions League.
Consequently, the newspaper expects him to complete a permanent move to Bergamo soon.
The 24-year-old is one of Chelsea’s most prolific loanees, having never played for the Blues and also spending time at Elche, Monaco, Milan and Spartak Moscow.
