Atalanta to sign Juve youngster

Atalanta are close to signing Juventus youngster Simone Muratore for a reported €7-8m.

Sky Sport Italia and Tuttosport report the deal is done to take Muratore to Atalanta, with the midfielder already passing a medical.

The 22-year-old came up through Juve’s youth system and has been a regular for their Under-23 team in the last two seasons.

He can also play in central defence but has just one minute of first-team football for the Old Lady under his belt.

His alleged transfer fee has raised a few eyebrows, much in the same way Juve raised around €80m from selling Stefano Sturaro, Alberto Cerri, Rolando Mandragora, Emil Audero and Riccardo Orsolini in each of the last two years.

As spotted by some eagle-eyed rival supporters, his valuation on esteemed transfer website Transfermarkt sits at just €125,000.
