Teun Koopmeiners reveals he has requested to leave Atalanta at the end of the season and confirms interest from Juventus and Premier League clubs.

The Netherlands international has been one of Serie A’s best midfielders over the last couple of seasons and it’s unsurprising that many top clubs have been linked with securing his signature in the summer.

The 26-year-old confirmed interest from Juventus and Premier League clubs in an interview with telegraaf.nl, revealing that he has already asked to leave Atalanta at the end of the current campaign.

“I told Atalanta I want to leave in the summer,” said the Dutch midfielder.

“Last season, there was concrete interest from Napoli, but the two clubs didn’t reach an agreement. I hope there will be options to consider this year. My girlfriend and I are enjoying Italy, but I would endure rain for some clubs in England.

“I’d lie if I said I have no news of interest from Juventus and Premier League clubs. I read the news, too. I’ve had an amazing time at Atalanta and I hope they will get a big sum.”

Koopmeiners’ stats and Atalanta asking price

Koopmeiners has scored 12 goals in 34 appearances across all competitions this season, including a brace against Juventus in a Serie A meeting two weeks ago.

According to reports in Italy, Manchester United scouts watched Koopmeiners live in Turin, but Liverpool and Tottenham have also been linked with a move for the Dutch midfielder.

Multiple sources in Italy suggest Atalanta’s asking price for Koopmeiners is €60m.
