Teun Koopmeiners

Liverpool challenging Juventus for Koopmeiners


Juventus will face a challenge from Liverpool in their bid to sign Atalanta midfielder Teun Koopmeiners this summer. The Dutchman has been decisive for La Dea this season, helping lead them to the semi-finals of the Europa League and the final of the Coppa Italia.

Calciomercato report that the 26-year-old wants to end the season by lifting a trophy, whether it’s the Europa League, Coppa Italia, or both, and then bid farewell to Atalanta in the best possible way.

With 11 goals in the league and 3 in the Coppa Italia, along with 6 decisive assists, Koopmeiners impacts the game as much as a forward, despite often playing deep in midfield. Sometimes as a playmaker, other times as a holding midfielder. All these factors are leading Liverpool to conduct thorough evaluations: The Reds’ future coach Arne Slot is enamored with the Dutch international. On the other hand, Atalanta remain firm on their €60 million valuation, a figure certainly within Liverpool’s reach and lower than that of Italian clubs.

Juventus have long placed Koopmeiners at the top of their wish list for the upcoming season, however director Cristiano Giuntoli must now accelerate on the sales front to create a war chest to invest in the Atalanta midfielder.
