Lennart Czyborra is about to trade in Heracles Almelo for Atalanta. The German left back arrived in Bergamo on Tuesday to complete his transfer. The Eredivisie club is said to earn 3.5 to 4 million euros from the defender’s sale. Robin Gosens is talking to TC Tubantia ahead of the arrival of his future teammate.
Gosens is a fixture this season with the eighth finalist of the Champions League. He followed the same path as Czyborra and left Heracles in 2017 for the Club A series. “Let him come,” Gosens responds in the regional newspaper. The 25-year-old left leg is happy with the upcoming reinforcement. “Finally a German again to talk to German. He also has the same background as me, we know the same people, that creates a bond. Knowing Heracles, his mentality and character are also good, I’m looking forward to it. ”
Transfer profile: Lennart Czyborra
Atalanta performs excellent in the Serie A and does so with relatively limited resources. Players from the Eredivisie are frequently watched, Gosens acknowledges. Hans Hateboer was previously taken away from FC Groningen. “They scout differently, look for lesser-known players. The Netherlands is an interesting market. It’s no coincidence that they ended up at Lennart. I have a lot of contact with the head scout, he has often been to Heracles, he said, “says Gosens. “The fact that they end up at Czyborra means that it fits the profile. They know exactly what they want and what they get. They almost never make a mistake in that. Hans Hateboer, Martin de Roon, players from Switzerland, Belgium and myself: our values have all more than doubled. ”
Just like with Heracles, the continued development of players is central to Atalanta. “Only Atalanta is much larger than Heracles. We are fourth (fifth, ed.), Play Champions League and make top clubs difficult. Italy has made me a better player in all areas. I come from the Eredivisie, where the technical aspect was important. Here it is very physical and tactical. I have become complete, much stronger. Training is long and intensive, it cannot be compared with the Netherlands. “
