Following his side’s 2-1 victory over SPAL, Atalanta attacker Josip Ilicic confirmed to Sky Sport that Roma made an approach for him in January for a reported €13 million. These are his words:
Roma made an attempt for you in January.
I’m a professional and there was this moment. If a club like Roma are looking at you, it’s normal that you’d want to go there, but I’m happy to play at Atalanta.
