Ruslan Malinovskyi isn’t even a guaranteed starter for Atalanta, but his performances have already raised the price-tag to at least €30m.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, if a club is to tempt Malinovskyi away from Bergamo this summer, it’s going to be a costly operation.
The 27-year-old Ukraine international was purchased from KRC Genk last year for €13.6m plus 10 per cent resale value.
Despite only starting 30 per cent of his competitive games this season, Malinovskyi has still contributed eight goals and seven assists in 38 matches.
His ferocious left foot hit the headlines too, with stunning long-range strikes.
It all means Atalanta have already doubled the valuation of the creative midfielder.
