Atalanta star Josip Iliicic is now close to staying at the club this summer, despite clear interest from Milan in signing him.
This comes from La Gazzetta dello Sport, who claim that while Ilicic seemed destined to leave La Dea this summer, things could’ve changed with Gian Piero Gasperini now. The Atalanta boss has expressed his desire to keep the Slovenian in the squad for next season.
Everything seems to have changed now and it does seem as if the ex-Fiorentina man has newfound confidence in the Atalanta project as well.
This comes after it was reported that Milan could sign the player in the last few days of the window, as it would allow them the best value of signing him.
