Liverpool: Atalanta Sporting Director comments on Teun Koopmeiners rumours

Liverpool: Atalanta Sporting Director comments on Teun Koopmeiners rumours - Liverpool News

Liverpool have ‘nothing concrete’ going on with Atalanta regarding a potential deal for Teun Koopmeiners, according to the club’s sporting director Tony D’Amico.

The Lowdown: Scouting mission

The Merseyside outfit are reportedly planning to make a box-office midfield signing this month following a mixed start to the season and have identified the 24-year-old as a potential target.

The Dutchman has been the recipient of interest from the Reds having scouted him on multiple occasions over the last 12 months, though it doesn’t sound like he’ll be making a move to the Premier League anytime soon.

The Latest: D’Amico’s comments

Speaking to Sky Italia (via Sport Witness), D’Amico admitted that Liverpool have been in contact to enquire about Koopmeiners, but quickly shut down any chances of him leaving for Anfield.

“There’s nothing concrete with Liverpool: we welcome the interest, but he’s one of our players.”

The Serie A star himself also recently confirmed that he’s content with his current position at the Gewiss Stadium.

“I’m playing for Atalanta, I’m very happy here and I’m only thinking about this.”

The Verdict: Blow for Klopp

Koopmeiners is a fantastic player and it’ll surely be a huge blow for Jurgen Klopp to learn that he’s set to miss out on his target, who’s been dubbed an ‘orchestrator’ and ‘press-resistant’ by scout Jacek Kulig.

The Castricum native has posted seven goal contributions so far this season and is currently averaging 1.8 shots and 1.6 key passes per league 90 minutes (WhoScored).

Liverpool will be gutted that they’ve failed to secure Koopmeiners, but it’s important that the hierarchy turn their attention elsewhere to sign a different central candidate before the end of the month.
