Atalanta package deal for Joao Pedro

Atalanta are on the verge of signing Cagliari attacking midfielder Joao Pedro for €8m plus Federico Mattiello and Luca Valzania.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Nerazzurri are in talks with the Sardinians and could include both Mattiello and Valzania in a package deal to bring the Brazilian to Bergamo.

The 27-year-old returned from a six-month doping ban to score seven times in 34 matches for the Rossoblu this term and looks set to be the Orobici’s second signing of the summer after Luis Muriel.

Meanwhile, full-back Mattiello spent the season on loan with Bologna, but he made just 17 league appearances this year, as injury cut his time on the field short.

Midfielder Valzania who was on loan with Frosinone, played just 15 times in Serie A last season.

However, Cagliari Coach Rolando Maran is said to be a fan of the 23-year-old.
