Milan wanted Atalanta-bound defender

Malmö FF defender Anel Ahmedhodžić confirms he is close to joining Atalanta and reveals Milan were interested in signing him.

"My move to Atalanta is not yet official. There are two clubs in Italy that have looked for me, but with the Nerazzurri the negotiations are now in an advanced stage," the 21-year-old told

"Many clubs followed me and wanted me already in January. Milan asked for information about me, as a child I looked at Maldini who is one of the idols that inspire me."

"Pjanic and Dzeko told me about Serie A, but above all my friend Kulusevski. Atalanta is the ideal place for a young player who wants to grow, I can't wait to test myself.”
