Laxalt chooses Atalanta

Atalanta are expected to close a deal for Milan full-back Diego Laxalt tomorrow, beating Fiorentina, Marseille and Fenerbahce.

The Uruguay international is no longer required at San Siro, just a year after his €14m plus bonuses move from Genoa.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Atalanta have agreed basic terms with the Rossoneri, a loan with option to buy that will become an obligatory purchase when certain conditions are met.

It gives Laxalt the opportunity to play in the Champions League and reunite with his former Genoa Coach Gian Piero Gasperini.

La Gazzetta dello Sport note that Fiorentina pulled back their interest in the 26-year-old, while he preferred Atalanta to Olympique Marseille or Fenerbahce.

Another crucial meeting is expected with his agent to agree personal terms tomorrow.
