Juventus Linked with Improbable Attempt for Koopmeiners

The Juventus management held a meeting on Thursday to talk strategy ahead of January, where they’ll look for a midfielder and decided to opt for either a six-month loan spell or a proper investment if they managed to sell some youngsters, with Teun Koopmeiners being a priority target in the second case, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.

On the other hand, Atalanta rejected €48M from Napoli last summer. They had already raked in enough money from other departures. The Dutchman could be their next plusvalenza, but more likely in the summer.

Given their needs, Juventus don’t want to wait and will make an attempt for Koopmeiners in January. They need to cash in on at least a pair of talents to have the resources for a proper bid. Matias Soulé, Samuel Iling-Junior, and Kenan Yildiz have attracted a few suitors in the Premier League.

Newcastle United and Crystal Palace are keen on the Argentine, and he could leave for €20/25M. The price tag of the former Chelsea winger is inferior, as he has yet to have an opportunity to be a regular. Instead, several sides are eyeing the 18-year-old, including Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig. It’ll take a €30M proposal to start the conversation.

Our Take on Juventus and Koopmeiners

While Cristiano Giuntoli is surely a fan, and the plan to buy either a stud or nobody is sound, La Dea isn’t going to part ways with a linchpin midseason, and the Bianconeri shouldn’t get rid of their most promising prospects.
