Atalanta chief Percassi: Pasalic our last piece of transfer business

Atalanta chief Luca Percassi says their transfer business is over.

Chelsea midfielder Mario Pasalic has signed on a new 12-month loan with the Oribici.

“For me, [the transfer window] has finished," Percassi said.

“With Luis Muriel we added an extraordinary striker to a department that was already extraordinary.

“The squad doesn't require touch-ups. Let's not forget we finished third. The summer transfer market consists of accelerations and braking,

“I don't think we need much else up top as we already had the League's best front line: our 103 goals throughout last season speak for themselves.

“Zapata, Ilicic and Gomez are staying. We'll still be at the window trying to seize any opportunities that arise, but with Muriel and the confirmation of Pasalic's [new] loan, we've pulled off two big coups."
