Atalanta are reportedly considering making a move for Birmingham midfielder Jordan James this summer.

Italian outlet La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Atalanta have James as their main target if Ederson or Teun Koopmeiners leave the club in the summer.

Atalanta are reported to be confident that Birmingham will lower their €10million asking price for the 19-year-old Wales international at the end of the season.

Reports have suggested that Juventus are planning to make an €40million bid for Koopmeiners, who is also being watched by Tottenham, Manchester United, Newcastle, Inter Milan and Napoli.

Manchester United, Liverpool, Newcastle United, Arsenal and Tottenham are all reportedly keeping tabs on Ederson ahead of the summer transfer window.
