You can watch our special transfer deadline day show on Oct. 5 from 4-7 p.m. ET on NBCSN as our analysts break down all of the late deals and drama.
Diallo is Ivorian but moved to Italy at a young age and already has a goal in three appearances for Atalanta. He’s been prolific at youth levels and has primarily been a right winger.
The fee is around $25 million with approximately $24 million further possible in add-ons. That’s a lot of money for a largely unproven player.
Yet wow, is he an exciting talent?!
Amad Traoré last season:
• 24 games, 7 goals & 11 assists for Atalanta U-19
• Serie A debut
• Youngest player to feature in Serie A last season
• Youngest player to score in Serie A last season
• First player born in 2002 to score in Serie A 💫
