Atalanta ready €10m bid for Ajax defender Sven Botman

Atalanta are ready to pay €10m to sign centre-back Sven Botman from Ajax, Tuttomercatoweb reports.

20-year-old Botman has spent the season on loan at Heerenveen, making 26 appearances in the Eredivisie and playing every minute.

Despite being a centre-back, the Dutch youth international has scored two and assisted four goals.

His excellent form led to Ajax handing him a new contract in February.

The Dutch giants have big plans for Botman, but Atalanta have made him their number one defensive target.

TMW points out that the clubs have very good relations which could help Atalanta’s attempts to sign Botman.

Atalanta are preparing a €10m bid for a player considered one of the best prospects in European football.

The Bergamo club also like young Swiss defender Becir Omeragic of FC Zurich, but he Botman is their first choice.
