Salernitana talent Ederson heading to Atalanta

by | Jun 22, 2022 22:31

Atalanta have reportedly agreed terms with Salernitana to sign attacking midfielder Ederson for €15m plus a player as part of the deal.

Coach Gian Piero Gasperini had requested Ederson in the summer to reinforce his squad in Bergamo, after a very impressive debut half-campaign in Serie A.

The Brazilian turns 23 next month and only made the €6.5m move from Corinthians to Salernitana in January 2022.

He still made a huge impact, scoring two goals and providing one assist in 15 Serie A games that helped the club avoid relegation.

It proved enough to attract attention from clubs including Inter and Paris Saint-Germain, but Atalanta seem to have got there first.

According to Sky Sport Italia transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio, the deal is worth €15m cash plus the inclusion of a player in part-exchange, said to be Matteo Lovato, the 22-year-old defender who was on loan at Cagliari.

While PSG were of course tempting, Atalanta can guarantee regular playing time.
