Highly-rated Iraq international Ali Adnan has moved to Atalanta B.C. on a one-year loan deal, with the Serie A side having the option to buy the left-back at the end of the season.
The Lion transferred from Caykur Rizespor to Udinese in 2015 and spent the last three seasons at the Italian club. Atalanta are currently competing for a place in Europe after finishing 7th in Italy’s top flight. The Bergamo outfit will battle it out with FC Copenhagen for a spot in this season’s Europa League.
Speaking exclusively to atalanta.it, Ali said: “I am very happy to join a big club like Atalanta. I wish to do my best to serve the team and raise my country’s name high in Italian football.”
Everyone at Soccer Iraq would like to wish Alawi the very best in his exciting new move!
