Atalanta, a Serie A club based in Bergamo, Italy, is making headlines with its sights set not just on seasoned footballers but also on promising young talents. One name is at the top of their list to bolster their midfield – Jordan James, a midfielder born in 2004 from Wales who has been making a name for himself at Birmingham City.
James was born in Hereford on 2 July 2004. Despite his young age, he has proved to be an intriguing midfielder. On paper, he could stand in for Marten De Roon, who has had notable performances in their matches against Milan at San Siro. However, his offensive abilities – particularly in the early phases of the game – have also seen him playing as an attacking midfielder for Birmingham. He has been exceptional in the Championship, with 27 appearances and five goals to his name.
Before any deal can be made, Atalanta must first make room in their midfield. Potential moves out include a loan deal for Adopo. It seems the ball is in Atalanta’s court, with the club reportedly prepared to offer €5 million plus bonuses in this transfer window for James.
This potential deal further signals Atalanta’s commitment to invest in young talents. Bringing in James would complement their balanced mix of experienced players and rising stars, making them a team to reckon with in Serie A.
