Atalanta Need to Be Blown Away to Sell Koopmeiners

Juventus and Liverpool have Teun Koopmeiners in their crosshairs, but it’s far from certain they’ll be able to convince Atalanta to give him up in the upcoming window. On the contrary, he may be deemed untouchable in the next few weeks, Tuttomercatoweb informed.

The future of the star midfielder has been one of the topics discussed by the management and Gian Piero Gasperini to extend the latter’s contract. The coach would like to keep all the centerpieces. The front office let it be known that it’d take a Rasmus Hojlund-like offer to pry the maestro away. Manchester United paid €74M plus €10M add-ons for the Dane.

While Koopmeiners stated he wanted to leave Atalanta this summer, that was before they won the Europa League and qualified for the Champions League. He’s under contract until 2027, so La Dea is in a comfortable spot.

According to Alfredo Pedullà, the Dutchman is the only cornerstone who might leave the Nerazzurri. The bid would have to be higher than €55M plus add-ons. He wouldn’t mind staying in Italy and is open to moving to Juventus. Gasperini asked to confirm the whole squad, but there could be one exception.

Among the players proposed by the Old Lady, the Orobici like Dean Huijsen and Matias Soulé a lot.
