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.
