Atalanta Ace Expected to Wind Up in England Eventually

Atalanta are set to repel the January offers for Teun Koopmeiners, but that might not be the case next summer, especially should they reach very high sums as likely. The maestro is generating plenty of interest in the Premier League. He could indeed transfer there, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.

La Dea and the Dutchman struck a deal for a contract extension not long ago, which ensured he stayed put last summer and in the upcoming window too. Napoli and Juventus eyed him, but the Bergamaschi’s price tag was humungous.

Newcastle United, which need to replace Sandro Tonali, are the most interested suitors. However, Atalanta have no plans to lose Koopmeiners in January, especially because they have a real shot at finishing in the top four or five, earning a Champions League return.

However, their brass is bracing for very sizeable bids post-June, and they might not resist. His sale is unlikely to fetch as much as Rasmus Hojlund’s but could be in the same ballpark. They turned down a €50M proposal from Napoli last summer. Besides the Magpies, Liverpool and Manchester United could be in the running. Roberto De Zerbi is a fan, but he’s too pricey for Brighton.

Our Take on Atalanta and Koopmeiners

It’d be a big blow, but the Orobici have proven they can bounce back from any departure and haven’t been shy in re-investing the income fully last summer.
