Atalanta: Juve want Gabbiadini

Atalanta have revealed that Juventus are interested in signing Italian Under-21 rising star Manolo Gabbiadini.

Gabbiadini has drawn attention this season for his form with Ciro Ferrara’s Azzurrini, having netted 10 goals in 13 appearances. Whilst the 20-year-old has yet to become a firm fixture in Stefano Colantuono’s first-team plans in Bergamo, he has now caught the eye of the Bianconeri.

“Something is happening,” sporting director Pierpaolo Marino confirmed to Citynews.

“There has been contact with Juventus, but we cannot speak in terms of days it will take to reach an agreement. You will see later.”

Juve are already thought close to signing another promising young Italian in the form of 18-year-old Brescia goalkeeper Nicola Leali and have also been linked with Siena’s 20-year-old forward Mattia Destro.
