On Saturday evening Club Brugge will face Antwerp FC in the final of the Croky Cup. Coach Philippe Clement can count from almost the same selection as last season. Although Emmanuel Dennis will probably start on the couch after he contracted a stomach virus this week.
Dennis has been linked to a departure from Jan Breydel for months, but he remained on the job for the time being. Meanwhile, foreign interest in the Nigerian is getting louder and the Italian Atalanta Bergamo would have intervened in the transfer battle. The team of coach Gian Piero Gasperini can still finish second in Serie A and is still active in the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
Atalanta Bergamo has grown into a top club in the Calcio in recent years thanks to a good vision that is of course extended to the transfer area. In view of equally good performances next season, the current employer of Timothy Castange is strongly thinking of taking Dennis away from Club Brugge.
The price tag of 25 million, according to journalist Gianluca Di Marzio as previously rated high by Atalanta standards. On the other hand, the Italians have grown into a European player in sports and finances, making 25 million euros no longer an insurmountable sum. Meanwhile also confirmed Sky Sports the interest of Atalanta in Dennis.
