According to GianlucaDiMarzio, Swansea City have agreed to sell forward Alberto Paloschi.

The report claims that Atalanta have seen a £6 million bid accepted and have offered the player a six-year deal with a salary of £1.2 million net plus bonuses as they await his decision.

Paloschi only arrived at Swansea from Chievo last January as the Welsh club looked to bring in some extra quality upfront in order to fight of an unexpected relegation battle.

The Swans, under the guidance of Italian coach Francesco Guidolin, improved immensely in the second half of the campaign as they picked up an impressive 27 points from the last 19 matches.

As a result, Guidolin successfully steered the club away from relegation but Paloschi only ever played a minor role for the club, scoring two goals in just seven Premier League starts.

It appears the 26-year-old doesn’t fit into the club’s plans for the coming season, and now a return to Serie A is on the cards with Atalanta having seen a bid accepted if fresh reports in Italy are to be believed.

Paloschi started his career at Milan and had spells at fellow top-flight Italian side Parma and Genoa before trading Chievo for Swansea during the January transfer window.

The versatile forward was an Italy U21 international with an impressive 29 caps, scoring nine goals.
