Over the past few weeks, Teun Koopmeiners has been linked with a few Premier League sides, including Liverpool. On Thursday, the Atalanta star talked about his desire to play in England.

Tutto Atalanta state the 26-year-old’s confession has raised eyebrows at the Serie A side, who are in contention for the Coppa Italia and the Europa League, where they face Liverpool.

The midfielder’s deal lasts until 2027 and this, coupled with his fine displays, puts La Dea in a strong position when negotiating a deal.

They sold Rasmus Højlund to Manchester United for €85m last summer and could request a fee close to this for Koopmeiners.

Juventus are interested in the Netherlands international but the price is a lot for them. Meanwhile, Liverpool are showing ‘concrete interest’, and will closely watch him when they face Gian Piero Gasperini’s side in the Europa League next month.

The Reds could take advantage of the two-legged tie, ‘potentially paving the way for early negotiations’ with the Italian club.

Meanwhile, Calciomercato state the Dutchman’s price starts at €70m, and this makes it complicated for Juve to sign him.

It’s said Liverpool, on the other hand, have ‘asked for him’ and could ‘start negotiations in advance’ when they face Atalanta in the Europa League next month.
