Atalanta midfielder Teun Koopmeiners has revealed that he has requested to leave the Italian side at the end of the season.

The 26-year-old has been strongly linked with the likes of Newcastle United, Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham, Inter Milan and Napoli.

Reports have also suggested that Juventus are already lining up a €40million bid for Koopmeiners.

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

“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.”

Reports have suggested that Atalanta have put a €60million price tag on Koopmeiners ahead of the summer transfer window.
