Juventus to Prioritize Atalanta and Genoa Stalwarts

Juventus are setting the table for a more glamorous summer window after two quiet ones and have two Serie A stars on their radar in particular, Teun Koopmeiners and Albert Gudmundsson. Their interest in the Dutchman is dated, while the Genoa ace would become a target if Federico Chiesa departed, La Gazzetta dello Sport informed (via Fantacalcio).

The Bianconeri are well aware that Atalanta are an expensive boutique. They’d have to shell out no less than €45M for the maestro. If they struck out, they’d have his teammate Ederson, who should be a little less pricey, as a fallback.

On top of Koopmeiners, Juventus are keen on Gudmundsson, which Genoa kept despite the interest from Fiorentina in the final days of the window. The Grifone want €25/30M. The Old Lady plots to offer Enzo Barrenechea as a makeweight to slice the valuation in half. The counterparty is reportedly interested in the Argentine.

The Bianconeri are poised for pivotal talks with Chiesa at the end of the season since he’ll have just one year on his contract at that point. They have been unable to agree to a new deal, even a bridge one. His frequent injuries aren’t helping his case.

Our Take on Juventus, Koopmeiners, and Gudmundsson

They continue to be linked with massive deals, and they’ll do a little more with the Champions League money, but the only way they’ll spend big is if they cash in on their youngsters or linchpins. They should tread very carefully there.
