Atalanta set to beat Everton in move for El Bilal Toure

Everton and Atalanta are keen on signing Almeria striker El Bilal Touré but La Dea seem close to sealing a move for the player.

Fabrizio Romano has reported about the situation of the Mali striker, stating that both Everton and Atalanta have put in offers to Almeria but their offers are of the same amount. 

Gianluca di Marzio has reported that La Dea could define their move and are one step away from sealing it. Everton have failed to make their move and Atalanta are now expected to land the player. An agreement could be reached in the next few hours and Atalanta are confident about it. 

In the meantime, Jeremie Boga will leave Atalanta and he is edging close to a switch to Ligue 1 side Nice, who will pay €18 million including bonuses.

Toure is seen as a potential replacement for Rasmus Højlund, who remains on Manchester United’s radar and they are soon expected to make a second offer for the Danish striker, who is rather keen on a move to Old Trafford. But Atalanta could also lose the likes of Duvan Zapata and Luis Muriel this summer, meaning that Toure could come in even if United do not end up signing Højlund.
