Alberto Grassi is considered by many to be the midfielder of the future, the kind of player who can do everything well. Excellent in breaking up play and good when it comes to supporting the attack, the 20-year-old is one of Serie A's more promising young midfielders. 

A number of clubs have been after Grassi, inclusing Fiorentina and especially Napoli, who would be willing to offer Omar El Kaddouri in exchange. 

We can also reveal that Adriano Galliani spoke to Atalanta's Sporting Director Giovanni Sartori straight after the Orobici had drawn 0-0 at the San Siro a few months ago. They had a long conversation about Grassi. His agents are also pushing him to move to Milan, and Galliani hasasked for what it would take to sell him.
