Atalanta Bergamo has confirmed the signing of Mitchel Bakker from Bayer Leverkusen.

The left-back has been a regular in Leverkusen since joining the club from PSG in 2021 but the arrival of Alejandro Grimaldo from Benfica has cut the left-back’s playing time chances.

Atalanta have now seen off competition from other clubs to sign the 23-year-old for around €10 million.

The former Ajax youngster made 70 appearances for Bayer Leverkusen over two seasons but now joins Hans Hateboer, Teun Koopmeiners and Marten de Roon in Bergamo.
