Atalanta close in on Muriel

Atalanta are on the verge of signing Sevilla forward Luis Muriel for €18m.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio’s website, the Orobici look set to wrap up a deal for the Colombian in the next few days as his involvement at Copa America was cut short by injury.

The 28-year-old will undergo a medical shortly, despite suffering collateral ligament damage to his left knee, and - if he passes tests - will put pen to paper on a four-year contract.

The former Sampdoria and Udinese striker spent the second half of the season on loan at Fiorentina, where he scored six goals in 19 Serie A games.
