New Liverpool Coach Wants Juventus and Serie A Targets

Freshly appointed Liverpool gaffer Arne Slot would like to sign two players with Eredivisie ties, Teun Koopmeiners and David Hancko, who have been routinely linked to Juventus and Napoli in the lead-up to the summer window, Tuttomercatoweb informed.

The Atalanta ace is one of the top names on the Reds’ list to bolster the midfield. He announced he’d ask to depart in the next transfer market session, but the Bergamaschi later disputed that. His price tag starts from €50M but could easily go up if multiple teams vie for him. He has recorded 15 goals and 7 assists in 48 matches across all competitions this campaign.

In addition to Koopmeiners, Slot and Liverpool have set sights on David Hancko, whom Napoli have been closely monitoring as he bloomed with Feyenoord, the coach’s former side. Per Il Mattino, the Partenopei want a player in his prime to partner with Amir Rrahmani and finally substitute for Kim Min-Jae appropriately.

On top of the Dutchman and Lucas Martinez Quarta, they have gathered intel on Radu Dragusin, Nehuen Perez, and Alessandro Buongiorno. The Udinese and Fiorentina center-backs would be the easiest to sign. Instead, they are unlikely to participate in the bidding war for the Torino star.

Our Take on Liverpool, Koopmeiners, and Hancko

If the Reds really targeted those players with conviction, they’d be no match for the Italian clubs. If the Bianconeri can make one large investment, and probably just one, it should be for La Dea’s maestro.
