Serie A side Atalanta have reached an agreement with Juventus to sign Ghana striker Richmond Boayke-Yiadom on a season-long loan deal, GHANASoccernet.com can confirm.

But the Nerazzurri must wait for Genoa, who co-own the youngster, to agree for the move to be ratified.

The 21-year-old spent last season on loan at Spanish La Liga side Elche where he scored six goals in 21 appearances.

“I can confirm that the agreement was reached today but the player must also agree personal terms,” the player’s agent Oliver Arthur told GHANASoccernet.com

“It looks promising and until and last minute move, Richmond will land at Atalanta for the upcoming season.”

Boakye cut his teeth in Italy and played for Genoa where he scored on his Serie A debut.

His 11 goals for Sassuolo in the Serie B two seasons ago ensured their promotion to the top-flight.
