Bologna have announced the arrival of Gambia international Musa Barrow from Atalanta on a six-month loan deal with an obligation to buy.

The 21-year-old will then make the switch permanent in the summer for a fee reported to be around €13 million on a five-year deal.

Barrow featured seven times in the Serie A for Atalanta, failing to open his account for the season, but registered two assists in the league.

His transfer ends his three-and-a-half year spell with the Lombardy outfit, having come through the youth ranks at the club.

His switch to 13-placed Bologna represents a new challenge for the forward whose entire club career hitherto was spent in Northern Italy.

Barrow could be in contention to feature in some capacity when his new side host Hellas Verona at Stadio Renato Dall'Ara on Sunday.
