Cornelius close to Parma

Parma are reportedly on the verge of signing Atalanta striker Andreas Cornelius after his loan spell at Girondins de Bordeaux.

La Gazzetta dello Sport, Sportitalia and Tuttomercatoweb are among the sources pointing to an imminent transfer.

The Danish centre-forward scored only three goals in 20 Ligue 1 appearances for Bordeaux last season.

Atalanta have no intention of keeping him and the transfer is believed to be worth €6.5m plus bonuses.

It comes just hours after a new deal was struck with Napoli for Parma to sign Roberto Inglese, on loan with obligation to buy for €20m plus €2m in add-ons.

This is a profit for Atalanta, who purchased the 26-year-old Dane from FC Copenhagen in 2017 for €3.5m.
