Musa Barrow wants to remain at Atalanta but the club is aiming for a loan move

Gambian international Musa Barrow is reportedly fixated on remaining at Atalanta this season according to manager Antonio Percassi.

According to various reports, there seem to be heated transfers rumours making the rounds, that Barrow is departing from the club but on a loan move - furthermore reports claim that the move may not be ideal as Atalanta will be playing in the UEFA Champions League.

"Barrow? I haven't seen him more determined than ever. With its desire, it should be an example for the other players," Percassi said. 

Borussia Dortmund emerged last season as one of the top suitors who were keen on Barrow's services after they were reportedly impressed by what he had done at Atalanta.

The Bundesliga side are said to still be keen on the budding striker but they are reportedly willing to table an offer of €15million at the minute. 

However, the Atalanta manager has been vocal about Barrow making a move to another club for more game time, with clubs such as Sampdoria and Cagliari also interested in taking him on.

Atalanta are in contention to make their Champions League debut and are looking for a player who will provide stiff competition for Colombia's Zapata.

Barrow was supposed to be the abovementioned competition but he struggled to make enough impact - managing to score only one goal.
