Despite protests from fans, Christian Vieri is expected to sign with Atalanta in the coming days.

Supporters are unhappy with the club's decision after the way the 35 year-old skipped out on Atalanta at the end of last season for Fiorentina.

Vieri failed to make an impact in Florence and hopes to rediscover the scoring form he enjoyed at Atalanta for the six months he was with the club.
