Atalanta keep tabs on Aston Villa star following appointment from Leicester City

Atalanta are keeping tabs on Aston Villa’s Matty Cash, who is also attracting La Liga giants Atletico Madrid.

La Gazzetta dello Sport claim that Cash is being followed closely by Atalanta and La Dea have grown to like the Poland international. The issue that the Bergamo-based club face is that other European clubs are also interested – like Atletico Madrid. Another problem is Villa’s asking price, which is currently at €40 million and it could prove to be too much for La Dea.

While the club is focused on finishing in the Europa League spots this season, Gian Piero Gasperini would like to improve his squad regardless. The club’s majority shareholder Steve Pagliuca should be in Bergamo soon and Lee Congerton, the senior recruitment head appointment from Leicester City, has been in the city for a while now. The squad is already being studied and improvements are being measured.

Congerton’s contact list is quite strong in the Premier League and that could potentially facilitate a move for Cash. The right-back switched his nationality earlier this season and he has scored three goals, while racking up as many assists in the Premier League.
