Atalanta found Foket heart problem

Thomas Foket discovered a heart problem during his failed Atalanta medical and will need surgery with six months off, it’s reported in Belgium.

The 22-year-old right-back had been all ready to complete his transfer from KAA Gent last week when suddenly negotiations were abandoned.

Atalanta only stated they couldn’t reach an agreement, but said this after the medical.

Now Sport Wereld claim the reason was the Atalanta doctors discovered a heart condition.

Official: Atalanta sign Castagne

Atalanta have officially signed Belgium Under-21 international Timothy Castagne from KRC Genk.

The right-back is effectively the replacement for Andrea Conti, who completed his transfer to Milan today.

Castagne was the second choice for the role, as Thomas Foket of KAA Gent pulled out of the move after a medical.

The 21-year-old scored two goals in 10 Europa League games last season, where Genk reached the quarter-finals.

Castagne to Atalanta frees Conti

Atalanta are on the verge of securing Timothy Castagne from Genk, thereby freeing Andrea Conti to join Milan.

The Bergamo club wants to have a replacement right-back in place before releasing Conti to San Siro.

“If Atalanta had signed Thomas Foket from KAA Gent, then Conti’s transfer would already have happened,” noted agent Mario Giuffredi today on TMW Radio.

“It’s a matter of days, any day now can be the right one.”

Conti to Milan delayed

Andrea Conti’s move to Milan isn’t likely this week, as Atalanta still have to find a replacement.

The Orobici abandoned a move for Thomas Foket of Gent when his medicals flagged-up a problem.

The 22-year-old would have replaced Conti at right wing-back, allowing the Italian international to complete his €25m move to Milan.

Despite reports he was close to Nice, Gazzetta della Sport believes Atalanta will complete a deal for Timothy Castagne of Genk.

Report: Atalanta drop Foket

Atalanta have reportedly abandoned their deal for KAA Gent's Thomas Foket following a medical and are now moving on to Timothy Castagne instead.

The transfer was effectively done for the 22-year-old, who can play on the right of defence or midfield.

Foket underwent a medical in Bergamo on Wednesday, but no announcement arrived.

According to Sky Sport Italia, that is because problems emerged and the transfer has been scrapped.

Conti and Spinazzola on the move

Atalanta are ready to part with both Andrea Conti (towards Milan) and Leonardo Spinazzola (back to Juventus early), having found replacements.

The Orobici had a sensational season, finishing fourth in Serie A and qualifying for the Europa League after over 40 years.

This made many of their young players hot property on the transfer market and Coach Gian Piero Gasperini seems to have accepted their departure.

Sky Sport Italia claim Milan will meet with Atalanta tomorrow to perhaps finalise the deal for right-back Conti.

Foket has Atalanta medical

Thomas Foket is having a medical with Atalanta, freeing Andrea Conti to sign for Milan.

The Rossoneri have had an agreement with Conti for some time, but so far they haven’t been able to find a deal with his club.

However, Corriere dello Sport is reporting this afternoon that Gent’s Foket is having a medical with the Bergamo club.

The 22-year-old plays on the right of midfield, but could fill in for Conti in the right wing-back spot.

Atalanta snatch Foket from Napoli

KAA Gent full-back Thomas Foket seems to be on the verge of joining Atalanta after interest from Napoli.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the Belgium international is very close to making the transfer to Bergamo.

He is seen as the ideal replacement for Andrea Conti, who seems determined to make the move to Milan this summer.

Napoli had been in talks for Foket as well, but Atalanta were more determined to push forward negotiations.

The 22-year-old can play in any role on the right flank, in defence, midfield or attack.
