Atalanta target 'new Ilicic'

Atalanta and Inter are allegedly preparing to fight for Lech Poznan’s 18-year-old attacker Filip Marchwinski, dubbed the 'new Josip Ilicic'.

On January 10, the starlet turned 18 and has attracted interest from a host of top clubs through his excellent performances with the Polish side.

He came through the ranks at Lech Poznan and broke through at senior level last season, making his debut in December 2018, one month before turning 17.

Marchwinski’s first goal came four months later against Legia Warsaw on April 24, 2019 and this season he has played 11 League matches and two in the Polish cup, contributing three goals in the process.

Calciomercato.com has claimed that Atalanta and Inter are looking at the 'modern No10', who is able to play in all three positions in an attacking trident, even as a false nine.

Inter reportedly flew to Poland to close a deal already a couple of years ago, but the youngster’s family allegedly stopped a deal from materialising.

Juventus and especially Atalanta are now joining the race and in Europe there’s a list of possible suitors apparently including teams like Ajax and TSG Hoffenheim.
