Atalanta director of sports Carlo Osti confirmed his club’s interest in signing Christian Vieri on a free transfer, despite the fans’ protests against this decision.
"There is a technical project which sees Vieri part of Atalanta next year," explained the director of sports.
"I must build a team which is capable of survival," he added, even though all other negotiations have stalled for the time being.
Many names have been linked to the Nerazzurri lately, but for the time being no transfers have been registered.
However, Osti has all the intentions of signing another striker apart from Vieri, and the most likely candidates are Cacia, Bjelanovic and Pellicori.
