Having lost most of their midfield last summer, Liverpool had to spend a lot to replace the majority of them, but the job isn’t finished.

This is why we see the Reds linked with the likes of Teun Koopmeiners, who continues to be the main target for Juventus this summer.

Gazzetta dello Sport have an article on the Dutchman, and explain that Liverpool appear to be the main competition for the Serie A giants.

The Turin side definitely want the Atalanta star and are ‘willing to make a financial sacrifice’ to ensure they get his signature in the summer.

However, Gian Piero Gasperini’s side are not looking to ‘make discounts’, and ‘look with interest’ towards the Premier League, knowing there is money there willing to be spent.

They know it could come ‘in particular from Liverpool’, who are said to have ‘already expressed’ their liking for the player ahead of the transfer window this summer.

Therefore, ‘the game is open’, as Gazzetta dello Sport put it, but Juventus can’t waste any time if they are to beat a Premier League club like the Reds to such an important target, especially when the cost will be somewhere between €50-60m.

Liverpool are said to be able to ‘guarantee an important sum’ to Atalanta and a ‘rich contract’ to the player, meaning they are more than dangerous to Max Allegri’s plans.
