Sam Lammers would be on his way to make the switch from PSV to Atalanta. WE writes Monday that there is a real chance that the striker will leave against the will of the people of Eindhoven and according to AD he has already reached an oral agreement with the Italian club.
Lammers scored three times in the preparation
Atalanta would like to deposit about 7 million euros for Lammers, but PSV thinks that transfer fee is still far too low. The people of Eindhoven are reportedly thinking of a double-digit million amount.
PSV would also like to keep Lammers, who still has a contract until mid-2021, and is not satisfied with the state of affairs. The Brabanders thought they had already reached an agreement with the 23-year-old attacker about a new alliance, but he has still not put his signature.
Lammers received the multi-year offer from PSV last year during his rehabilitation period. At that moment he was recovering from a serious knee injury, which he sustained more than a year ago during the match for the Johan Cruijff Scale against Ajax (2-0 loss). He made his comeback at the beginning of this calendar year.
In his first seasons with PSV, for which he made his debut in 2016, Lammers had little prospect of playing time. After a successful season with sixteen league goals on a rental basis at sc Heerenveen, he went on the hunt for a starting place last year.
However, his serious injury threw a spanner in the works, but he could make the necessary playing minutes for next season. In preparation for the new Eredivisie season, he scored three times.
A possible departure from Lammers to Atalanta would come at a very inconvenient time for PSV. For the 24-time national champion, the new Eredivisie season will start next Sunday with an away match against FC Groningen.
