ATALANTA have signed Almeria striker El Bilal Toure to replace Manchester United-bound Rasmus Hojlund.
The Red Devils have agreed a £72million deal to prise Hojlund from Atalanta.
Erik ten Hag's side will pay an initial £64m plus another £8m in add-ons for the forward.
Personal terms are not expected to be a problem, with Hojlund to sign a four-year deal with an option for a fifth.
In the wake of their Danish forward's exit, Atalanta have forked out £25m to sign Toure from Almeria.
Toure, 21, scored seven goals in LaLiga for Almeria last season.
