Napoli Keep Chasing After Atalanta Ace Koopmeiners

Despite being in advanced talks to sign Gabri Veiga from Celta Vigo, Napoli haven’t forgotten about Teun Koopmeiners. They continue to stay in touch with Atalanta, which are putting up strong resistance. On the other hand, the midfielder is keen on the transfer because he wants to play in the Champions League, Il Mattino reports.

The Partenopei are willing to get to a lofty sum should La Dea accept a loan with the obligation to buy. The Scudetto holders propose €5M as the initial fee, €30M next year, plus €3M add-ons and a 10 percent resale clause. The counterparty could be more lenient after signing Charles De Ketelaere.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Atalanta replied to the advances by Napoli by asking for €50/60M for Koopmeiners. Their wall hasn’t had any cracks so far.

The Partenopei are about to up their offer for Veiga. His arrival doesn’t necessarily hinge on Piotr Zielinski’s departure. He’s having reservations about moving to Al-Ahli because his family would like to stay in Italy, Gianluca Di Marzio informs.

Our Take on Napoli and Koopmeiners

La Dea always drives a very hard bargain and for good reasons, since they usually obtain what they wish for. While the transfer is far from imminent, their recent pricey moves suggest another major sale might be coming. But the Azzurri would have to reach uncomfortable levels fee-wise.
