Saudi Arabian club Al-Hilal are ready to offer Alejandro Gomez a huge salary, reports suggest, as well as offering €15m to Atalanta.
Papu is Orobici captain and a fan favourite, but there are fears he could leave the club this month.
Independiente are interested, as are clubs in China and the UAE, but calciomercato.com reports Al-Hilal are the most serious about making a move this month.
The website believes a first offer of €15m is being prepared, as well as huge salary for Gomez.
Atalanta, however, are determined to keep hold of their talisman and would need an offer of at least €20m even to consider selling him.
In addition, Coach Gian Piero Gasperini considers Gomez to be crucial both to his style of play and the dressing room and the tactician would be furious if an offer is accepted.
