Arne Slot prioritising Liverpool move for Teun Koopmeiners

Liverpool manager Arne Slot is reportedly keen on reuniting with Atalanta midfielder Teun Koopmeiners at Anfield this summer.

According to TuttoMercatoWeb, Arne Slot wants Liverpool to sign Teun Koopmeiners in the summer transfer window. The Netherlands international is valued at €60 million by Atalanta, although his next destination might be Juventus.

Koopmeiners has been a key player for club and country over the last 12 months, and his performance has attracted the attention of the Liverpool manager. The player is valued at €60 million, and he helped Atalanta win the UEFA Europa League last season.

The 2023/24 Europa League winner produced 15 goals and seven assists in all competitions, and he could prove to be the ideal acquisition for the Liverpool midfield. It is no secret that Liverpool need to add more quality to their squad.

Thiago Alcantara left the club earlier this summer, and Liverpool will have to replace him adequately. Although the Dutch international has a different skill set, he will goals and creativity to the Liverpool midfield and the Reds are in need of that.

Koopmeiners has played for Arne Slot

Koopmeiners has played under Arne Slot during their time together at AZ Alkmaar, and he knows the Dutch manager well. He should be able to fit into Slot’s style of play and philosophy quickly at Liverpool. The 26-year-old midfielder has the physical and technical attributes to adapt to English football, and he will look to make an instant impact at Liverpool if the move goes through.

However, the €60 million asking price could be a bit of a problem for Liverpool. The Reds will need to improve multiple areas of their squad, and they cannot afford to spend €60 million on the creative midfielder. They will hope to sign him for a more reasonable price, and it will be interesting to see if Liverpool can convince at Atalanta to lower their demands.

Meanwhile, the Dutch international midfielder will feel that he has proven himself in Italy and he will look to take the next step in his development. The opportunity to join one of the biggest clubs in the world will be quite attractive for him, and he will look to secure a move to Liverpool in the coming weeks. However, a move to Juventus appears likely for the Dutchman.
