Percassi is celebrating 10 years since he returned to serve as Atalanta’s President, but his interview with L’Eco Di Bergamo to mark the occasion was overshadowed by a question about Gasperini.

Muriel challenges Zapata

Colombia international Luis Muriel has challenged compatriot Duvan Zapata ahead of the return to action with Atalanta: “I will try to take his place.”

Muriel has bagged 13 of the Orobici’s 70 goals so far, despite having struggled to establish himself in the first XI under Gian Piero Gasperini.

Atletico Madrid eye Duvan Zapata

Atletico Madrid have set their sights on Duvan Zapata, but Atalanta want at least €60m for the Colombia international striker.

The 29-year-old had quite a few injury problems this season, but still managed to contribute 12 goals and seven assists in 19 competitive appearances for La Dea.

According to Sport Mediaset, this has caught the eye of Atletico Madrid and Diego Simeone, who admires his remarkable work-rate and physicality.

Gomez hails impressive Atalanta attack

Captain Alejandro Gomez has claimed the options in attack at Atalanta are ‘crazy’ regarding 'the budget in a provincial side’ like the Orobici.

The Orobici captain spoke to the former Italy international Christian Vieri about his two partners in attack, Josip Ilicic and Duvan Zapata.

“I don’t enjoy anything during the week. Matchday is my day off,” Gomez told Vieri on Instagram Live. “Ilicic complains about everything, but he’s like that, sometimes he’s joking.

Asprilla: 'I'm worth €300m!'

Ex-Parma star Faustino Asprilla claims he would be worth €300m in today’s market and Duvan Zapata should leave Atalanta “if he wants to win something”.

Asprilla was considered one of the world’s best attackers in the early 1990s, winning silverware with Parma before a £6.7m move to Newcastle United in 1996.

That fee, however, pales in comparison to the €44m Juventus have invested in Dejan Kulusevski, despite the youngster having only half-a-season of top-level football behind him.

Ilicic the icon of Atalanta

Atalanta made their mark in the Champions League by thrashing Valencia over two legs and Kaustubh Pandey praises their historic four-goal hero Josip Ilicic.

Josip Ilicic was always meant to be ‘just another’ player in Serie A. He was never seen as a world-beater at his former clubs. His stints at Fiorentina and Palermo were hardly iconic, as his highest goal scoring tally stood at 13 for La Viola in the 2015-16 season. His move to Atalanta in the summer of 2017 had come in the wake of a mere five-goal season in 2016-17. It was one of the lowest scoring campaigns in his career.

Atalanta living the dream

Tonight’s Champions League Round of 16 tie is historic for Atalanta, but Emmet Gates explains their ascent is more than a mere fairy-tale story.

‘Christmas has come early’ was the general feeling coming out of the Atalanta camp in the aftermath of the Champions League draw in mid-December. The competition’s greatest surprise package this season had somehow made it into the last 16, and were drawn against Valencia.

Whilst Los Che will be no easy pushovers, it’s generally agreed that La Dea, and their Spanish opponents, could have got a much tougher draw. Both sides avoided the heavy-hitters, and both stand with a realistic chance of reaching the quarter final.
