Mavididi to Atalanta or Lille?

Stephy Mavididi’s Montpellier move has reportedly collapsed, so the Juventus striker could now join Atalanta or Lille.

Mavididi seemed to be on his way to Montpellier in a €5m transfer, satisfying Juve’s desire to sell him before June 30.

However, Foot Mercato writes the 22-year-old has had a change of heart and wants to leave France after his loan spell at Dijon last season.

Instead, the website states Atalanta have shown an interest in the former Arsenal youngster, as have Lille who stand to lose both Loic Remy and Victor Osimhen this summer.

Although Lille play in Ligue 1 like Montpellier, they can at least offer Mavididi European football next season in the Europa League.

He scored eight goals in 30 appearances for Dijon last term and, during the 2018-19 campaign, turned out for the Bianconeri’s Under-23 side.

The forward also played once for Juve’s first team, appearing in a 2-1 defeat to SPAL without finding the back of the net.
