Juventus Set Budget and Strategy to Acquire Koopmeiners

Juventus will accelerate their efforts to sign Teun Koopmeiners after appointing Thiago Motta. They are ready to offer most of their summer funds for the Atalanta star. It remains to be seen whether that’ll be enough to meet the demands. The competition is also a factor, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.

The Bianconeri could offer at most €40M on the nail and are willing to include one of their touted talents. The Bergamaschi would be able to pick and choose between Matias Soulé, Dean Huijsen, Samuel Iling-Junior, and Joseph Nonge. They all have different valuations.

Atalanta start from a €60M asking price for Koopmeiners, and Juventus could get there only thanks to a makeweight. The Nerazzurri have generally preferred to cash in fully on their centerpieces. Their president Antonio Percassi discussed the potential sale of the Dutchman in an interview. He was quizzed about whether the team is better positioned to turn down large proposals now.

“Only if it was a choice coherent with the necessary strategy of a small club that always needs to balance its books. If you do a deal, it’s because you have a proper substitute. We’re not naïve and wouldn’t sell key players without a fallback.”

The maestro might have been promised to be let go this year after La Dea rejected a hefty bid from Napoli last summer.

Our Take on Koopmeiners and Juventus

The Bianconeri will need some help from the player himself to be successful. He and his club will likely receive richer offers from other outfits. Huijsen would be a particularly intriguing fit under Gian Piero Gasperini.
