This is why the Bianconeri have submitted their first offer for Dutch midfielder, Teun Koopmeiners, keen to beat out competition from EPL Side, Liverpool. The 26-year-old was one of the best midfielders in the Italian topflight this term.

He played a crucial role in La Dea’s historic success in the Europa League and their charge to Champions League qualification. Koopmeiners attracted the attention of Juventus, Liverpool and various other top clubs due to his strong and consistent performances for Atalanta, scoring 15 goals and providing seven assists in 50 appearances across all competitions.

According to a report from Calciomercato and Gazzetta dello Sport, Juve sporting director, Cristiano Giuntoli has sent in an offer, proposing a fixed €40m fee with €5m in add-ons. This is below la Dea’s €60m valuation, which they aren’t willing to budge from, forcing the Old Lady to alter their offer.

Giuntoli is thinking about trying to include youngster Dean Huijsen in a deal to help lower the costs. They will have to move quickly for the player as Liverpool consider him a top priority for their new manager, Arne Slot who will replace the departing Jurgen Klopp. Apart from Koopmeiners, Ederson is also seen as a transfer target for Juventus.

Meanwhile…

A separate report from Gazzetta has it that Juventus rejected Allegri’s request to terminate his contract, valid until 2025, through the payment of €14m gross, rather than €20m.

According to the report, Juventus have refused an offer from their ex-coach, who was sacked by the Serie A giants two days after a Coppa Italia Final against Atalanta. Juventus did win the title, but Allegri’s anger erupted after the final whistle when he raged at directors and even a journalist in the mixed zone.

The club said Allegri was fired for disciplinary reasons but the Italian tactician still has a year left in his contract at the Allianz Stadium. According to Gazzetta, both parties want to avoid going to court, so they must reach an agreement over Allegri’s payout.

However, the Serie A giants want to pay less than €14m gross, as Allegri requested. The Livorno-born coach should have received €20m gross until the end of his contract in June 2025 if the club don’t have a probable cause to sack him.
