Atalanta to sign Rick Karsdorp as Castagne replacement

Atalanta have identified Roma right-back Rick Karsdorp as the man to replace Timothy Castagne.

Castagne is joining English side Leicester City in a deal worth up to €25m after three seasons in Bergamo.

And Atalanta are moving quickly to replace him with Dutch international Karsdorp, who spent last season on loan at Feyenoord.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Karsdorp will first renew his Roma contract for budgetary reasons.

The 25-year-old will then join Atalanta on loan with an obligation to buy for €7m in a year’s time.

The source of this news, Di Marzio’s colleague Manuele Baicocchini, adds that they will acquire 60% of Karsdorp’s pass (40% sell-on clause for Roma).
