Despite strong interest in Serie A, Spanish club Sevilla are believed to be the favourites to land out-of-favour Atalanta captain Papu Gomez.
The Argentine has been frozen out after a bitter dispute with coach Gian Piero Gasperini and appears set for the exit at the Stadio Atleti d’Azzurri, with Atalanta ready to cash in.
Gomez’s situation had put Serie A rivals Inter, Juventus and Roma on alert but Calciomercato.com instead suggest that his future may lie outside of Italy, as Sevilla look to complete a deal.
Atalanta are determined not to sell to a domestic rival and have so far resisted bids, especially from Inter, whilst Gomez himself is thought to be increasingly open to a move abroad.
Gomez has scored 59 goals in 252 appearances for Atalanta since arriving from Ukrainian club Metalist in 2014.
