Atalanta open talks for Stuttgart midfielder Orel Mangala

Atalanta have started negotiations about a possible deal for VfB Stuttgart midfielder Orel Mangala, according to Alfredo Pedulla.

Mangala was one of the key figures in guiding Stuttgart back to the Bundesliga and is a highly rated talent.

With good dribbling and precise passing, Mangala has impressed Atalanta boss Gian Piero Gasperini.

Mangala has a double-digit (€10m-plus) valuation and Atalanta are said to be ‘very interested’ in him.

English side Arsenal were just one of numerous clubs to express an interest in him last year.

The Belgium under-21 international previously played for Anderlecht and Borussia Dortmund before joining VfB.

He made 29 appearances in the latest 2. Bundesliga season, scoring once and providing three assists.
