Although the German national team were disappointing overall at Euro 2020, the form of Atalanta’s Robin Gosens didn’t go unnoticed.

It may have added a few more euros to his value and, importantly, it appears that Atalanta have resigned themselves to the player moving on, potentially in the current transfer window.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Juventus retain an interest although a move to their Serie A rivals seems distant at present.

Joan Laporta wants to upgrade Barcelona’s first-team squad

Barcelona have apparently entered the race, with Joan Laporta looking to upgrade the squad significantly this summer.

If the Catalans want to sign the player, however, they’ll have to stump up at least €40m according to Tuttomercatoweb.

That won’t necessarily be a problem, as long as Laporta can ensure the sales of those fringe players who no longer have a future at the club.
