PSV striker Sam Lammers wants to join Atalanta

PSV Eindhoven could lose Sam Lammers this summer with the striker pushing for a move to Atalanta.

According to De Telegraaf and other Dutch sources, Atalanta have made an approach for the 23-year-old.

Furthermore, Lammers and his agent want PSV to let him join last season’s third-placed team in Serie A.

These developments have irritated PSV because Lammers had a verbal agreement in place for months to sign a new deal.

Several clubs have expressed their interest in Lammers, but Atalanta’s is the most concrete.

Atalanta want to pay €7m for Lammers, but PSV are looking for a ‘double digit’ fee of €10m-plus.

The Eindhoven club do not intend to make it easy for Lammers and his agent Reza Fazeli, but will accept a good offer.

Lammers is out of contract in a year’s time and if he does not renew, PSV know they have to cash in now.

PSV boss Roger Schmidt favours pairing young English prospect Noni Madueke with Donyell Malen up-front, so Lammers is not guaranteed a start.

Lammers spent the 2018-19 season on loan at Heerenveen, scoring 19 goals in his 35 appearances.

A serious knee injury kept him out of action until late January last season, limiting his involvement.

After his return, Lammers scored two goals in seven Eredivisie appearances for PSV.
