German Denis is reportedly close to completing a summer move from Udinese to newly promoted Atalanta.
The Argentine international has been targeted by the Nerazzurri and talks between the two clubs have got underway.
Denis, contracted to the Stadio Friuli side until June 2015, is liked by Atalanta director Pierpaolo Marino – the same man who signed him for Napoli in the past.
It's unclear what type of transfer will be agreed for the 29-year-old South American given that he could move on loan, in a co-ownership deal or in an outright transfer.
