Ghana's No. 1

Atalanta close to Boakye-Yiadom loan deal

Published on: 28 August 2012

Italian Serie A side Atalanta are leading the race to secure the services of striker Richmond Boakye-Yiadom on loan from Juventus.

Boakye, 18, a summer signing cannot be guaranteed playing time at Juventus Stadium.

The Ghana international was an unused substitute in last Saturday's 2-0 win over Parma at home in their title defence.

Last season, he was loaned out to Serie B side Sassuolo by his former club Genoa and helped them to the semi-final of the promotional play-offs.

He scored ten goals in all competition despite battling injuries.

Boakye needs more playing time to seal a place in the Ghana national team.

He scored on his Ghana debut this month in an international friendly against China.
