Liverpool one step ahead in the signing of Teun Koopmeiners with a deal of €60m Transfers

To ease the burden on Japan midfielder Wataru Endo, rumours are rife that Liverpool will move for a midfielder, as they did last summer. Primarily, the focus has been on defensive midfielders, with continued interest in Europa League-winning Atalanta midfielder Teun Koopmeiners also reported.

The Dutch midfielder, who can cover a wide area of midfield, prefers a more attacking position and was involved in a number of goals last season, scoring 15 goals and assisting seven. His performances have also attracted the attention of new coach Thiago Motta’s Juventus.

According to Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, Liverpool are leading the battle for the player, with top Serie A clubs interested.

It should be noted that Atalanta are demanding €60 million, while Juventus are looking to conclude negotiations for around €40 million.

Liverpool have a new head coach in Dutchman Arne Slot, and in addition to the nationality link, the player’s name has been widely mentioned in the media as a player who can play at the bottom of midfield, and along with fellow Brazilian midfielder Ederson, his chances of making the step up are increasing.

However, the main concerns are the Dutch midfielder’s position and transfer fee. It is not known what formation the new head coach Slot will adopt, but there is no need to spend a lot of money on a transfer as there are excellent midfielders at inside-half under Klopp.

Also, as Liverpool are said to be reinforced by centre-backs and attackers, it is unlikely that they will be serious about a midfielder, as this report suggests.

Liverpool have had a quiet summer up to this point, but what reinforcements will they be able to conclude?
