Atalanta break club transfer record to sign El Bilal Toure from Almeria

Atalanta have broken a club transfer record for new transfer arrival El Bilal Touré, 21, from Almeria.

The striker has joined La Dea on a permanent basis for an estimated fee worth €30 million (including bonuses)—the most expensive transfer in their club history. The operation surpassed the €22 million deal they made in 2022 to acquire Jeremie Boga from Sassuolo.

The Mali international moves to Serie A after spending last season in La Liga, where he collected 7 goals and 2 assists in 21 league appearances. Prior to Spain, he spent two-and-a-half seasons in France with Reims—ending his time with 9 goals and 5 assists in 69 matches.
