Atalanta have had a fantastic year in Serie A with Champions League football secured and their squad is littered with some great talents including myClub favourite Duvan Zapata and midfield maestro Josep Ilicic.
We are still awaiting news on PES 2022 but with the game usually released in September/October we should expect some news soon.
