Atalanta will take up their option to buy Chelsea loanee Mario Pasalic at the end of the season, reports Tuttosport.
La Dea signed the Croatian midfielder on a two-year loan deal from Chelsea in the summer of 2018, and he has been a big hit in Bergamo.
Now, Tuttosport writes Atalanta will exercise their option to retain the 24-year-old for €15m next summer.
Pasalic has scored 12 goals in 60 appearances for Gian Piero Gasperini’s side, providing nine assists.
The midfielder also had a stint at Milan, playing for the Rossoneri during the 2016-17 campaign.
