Atalanta Enquire About Super Eagles Star Iwobi

Atalanta Enquire About Super Eagles Star Iwobi 

Serie A side Atalanta have enquired about Everton Nigerian star forward Alex Iwobi.

The Italian top flight are keen to strengthen their attack before the transfer slams shut and had explored a deal for Chelsea centre-forward Tammy Abraham.


However, Atalanta are said to have dropped out of the race to sign the England international, with the club reluctant to meet Chelsea’s £40m asking price.

Having ended their efforts to sign Abraham, the Serie A club are now looking at other options in the Premier League to strengthen their attack for the 2021/22 season.

And according to Italian outlet Tutto Mercato, Gian Piero Gasperini’s side have enquired about the possibility of signing Iwobi.

While the Serie A club have made enquiries for a host of Premier League players, Everton’s Iwobi appears to be on the top of their list.

However, affording Iwobi’s wages could prove to be a challenge for Atalanta and the 25-year-old could have to take a salary cut to move to the Italian club.

  • In as much as I would have loved this to happen, it’s seems very unlikely. Going by Everton’s pre-season, Benitez seems to be building Everton’s game on Iwobi’s quick passing ability in the final third. Iwobi is becoming the pivot of the final third. We keep our fingers crossed, as anything can happen in the world of football.

    Nice point noted @Glory.

    He gets to play in the champions league, and also get to play outside the usual him.

    Hopefully, benitez might give him a chance once again, I hope he gets involved with goals this season.

  • Benitez likes to work with SE players. I stand to be corrected though.
