Atalanta are among the clubs said to be offering a contract to free agent England international striker Daniel Sturridge.
He turns 30 next month and is available after his ties with Liverpool expired.
According to The Times, Atalanta are one of the many sides who have stepped forward with a proposal for the player.
Calciomercato.it claim the personal terms on offer from the Orobici are €1.4m per year plus bonuses.
His demands are believed to be €3m per year and he has a superior bid on the table from Fenerbahce, but Atalanta are in the Champions League for the first time in their history.
The Orobici finished third in Serie A last season and reached the Coppa Italia Final.
Other sides reported to be interested in Sturridge are Bologna, Real Betis, Leganes, Real Valladolid, DC United, Philadelphia Union, Olympique Marseille and Eintracht Frankfurt.
