Atalanta were arguably the most exciting team in Serie A last season, and Robin Gosens was one of the stars.

Gosens moved to Atalanta from Heracles Almelo for €900,000 in 2017 and after a quiet first season, has become a very good player under manager Gian Piero Gasperini. The 26-year old has played as a left wing-back, left-midfielder and as a left-back last season for his side, providing good attacking impetus.

Gosens made 31 starts in Serie A last season, scoring nine goals and providing eight assists. His form has seen him linked with the likes of Juventus and Chelsea in recent months.
