With Damiano Zenoni widely expected to join Juve at the end of this season, following his twin brother Cristiano out of the club, both Gianpaolo Bellini and Luciano Zauri (pictured) are also attracting widespread interest.
Atalanta have quickly become known as one of the best breeding grounds for young talent in Italy, and the production line that saw the likes of Ivan Pelizzoli, Massimo Donati and Zenoni roll on to new clubs is by no means at an end.
Bellini and Zauri are both burgeoning talents, and will play a key part in Atalanta's season, and will be mindful that good performances will earn them lucrative moves to the big clubs.
Although Atalanta could be viewed as losing out by selling their young players, it seems that their role as a virtual feeder club plays a large part in attracting the best young talent to Bergamo - where they know they will get a chance if they are good enough.
