On Saturday, Atalanta announced the signing of El Bilal Toure, a 21-year-old forward from Almeria in Spain.
The Serie A club did not reveal the specifics of the transfer, but according to Italian media, Toure has joined on a four-year contract for a fee of approximately 30 million euros, which is a record for the club.
This exceeds their previous highest transfer fee of 22 million euros paid for Jeremie Boga from Sassuolo in the previous season.
Toure, who made his debut for Mali in 2020, has earned 15 international appearances and has netted five goals. Following a successful season in LaLiga, where he scored seven goals in 21 games, the winger garnered attention from various clubs, including Everton.
Atalanta, who finished fifth in Serie A last season, secured a place in the group stage of the Europa League.
