Mohun Bagan SG are reportedly scouting 2.Bundesliga club Magdeburg for Barış Atik, the central attacking midfielder. The player has been highly influential and helped them make the move to the second tier from the third. The Mariners are reportedly trying to bring him in for the summer, but will face an uphill task in doing so.
The Turkish midfielder has provided eight assists and scored two goals in 19 games in the second tier this season. As a result, he has also been linked with a number of top tier Bundesliga clubs in the summer transfer, dampening the chances of a move to the ISL.
Barış Atik In talks with Mohun Bagan for summer move
Barış Atik is known for his technical proficiency, vision on the field, and versatility. Primarily a midfielder, he has the ability to operate in various positions, including central midfield and attacking midfield roles. His dribbling skills, close ball control, and agility make him a dynamic player capable of navigating through tight spaces and taking on opponents with ease.
Atik possesses excellent passing ability, showcasing his vision and playmaking qualities. His awareness on the field allows him to create goal-scoring opportunities for his teammates. Additionally, he is known for his work rate and ability to contribute defensively, making him a well-rounded midfielder.
He began his professional career with the German club Borussia Mönchengladbach, where he rose through the youth ranks. However, he gained prominence during his time with FC Kaiserslautern in the 2. Bundesliga. His performances in the German leagues showcased his potential, attracting attention from clubs across Europe.
Even if the Maroon and Green side want to bring in a new foreign player, they will have to move one of their current players on. Armando Sadiku has been linked with a move to Spain in the summer, and could materialise soon. On the other hand, Hugo Boumous could also end up leaving if Antonio Habas doesn’t play him.
In such a scenario, the recruitment of an attack minded forward would be the right choice. But the likelihood of it being Barış Atik is very low considering how valuable he is, and the standard of his performances.
