Man United reportedly working on a deal for Atalanta winger Amad Traore

With less than a week of the current transfer window remaining, Manchester United are said to be aiming to frash out a deal for Amad Traore.

Atalanta youth product

Amad Traore is an 18-year-old winger who has come up through the youth ranks of Italian outfit, Atalanta.

Despite his tender years, Traore has notched up a numbers of appearances for Atalanta’s youth sides, scoring 23 and assisting six in 41 outings for the club’s under-17 side.

Such impressive exploits eventually saw the youngster handed his senior Atalanta debut last term.

Traore would come off the bench for the final 13 minutes of Atalanta’s Serie A clash with Udinese back in October of 2019.

Atalanta would go on to win that clash 7-1 with Traore finding the back of the net once.

In doing so, he etched his name into the Serie A history books, becoming the youngest player, at 17 years and 109 days old, to score on their Serie A debut.
