Liverpool win the Teun Koopmeiners battle with Juventus...Will it happen this summer Transfers

Last summer, Liverpool added four new midfielders.Jordan Henderson and Fabinho, who were key players under Jurgen Klopp, left, while Alexis Mc Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai joined and quickly fitted into the squad.

Thiago Alcantara is due to leave this summer, but promising youngsters such as Stefan Bajcetic and James McConnell are starting to emerge, while 21-year-old midfielder Tyler Morton is thriving on loan and developing as a player.

Still, Liverpool may add a new midfielder. According to Italian newspaper Tuttomercatoweb, they have won the battle with Juventus for Dutch midfielder Teun Koopmeiners and are expected to add him to their squad at the end of the season.

The interest in the player, which has been reported a lot in the past, has become more realistic as the new coach is from the Netherlands: they have fought together in a coach-player relationship at AZ Alkmaar and know each other’s features and personalities.

He has been a regular at Atalanta this season, making over 40 appearances and scoring in double figures. He also played a full part in the Europa League quarter-final against Liverpool, so he knows the atmosphere at Anfield first hand.

The 26-year-old midfielder has also made 21 appearances for the Dutch national team, but will he be fighting alongside his former mentor at Anfield…?
