VfB Stuttgart could lose the next top performer in defender Borna Sosa: How sports1 reported, the 24-year-old has already verbally agreed on a change with Serie A club Atalanta Bergamo.
However, there are still a few obstacles that need to be cleared before the transfer: Bergamo, who started the new Serie A season with a win and a draw, must first sell players in order to be able to pay the fee for Sosa . This is said to amount to 20 million euros, plus success-related bonuses.
Stuttgart’s sports director Sven Mislintat commented on a possible departure of Sosa on Monday. at sky he explained: “After the changes of Marc Cucurella and David Raum, he is the hottest iron at left-back position in Europe.” Negotiations between the two clubs are still pending. “We have to take a look,” said Mislintat, “but nothing is concrete yet.”
Sosa could become the second regular to leave the Swabians in the coming days: striker Sasa Kalajdzic has been linked with Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers. Here, too, only the transfer fee is being negotiated.
“There are initial interests from England, the Wolves are one of them,” explained Mislintat when asked about Kalajdzic, “but at the moment it’s not really concrete on either side.”
