Atalanta star Teun Koopmeiners has been backed for a big move with rumours that CHELSEA are interested in a potential deal.

Koopmeiners is having a phenomenal season with Atalanta, racking up ten goals and three assists in Serie A, and has fast become one of the most sought-after players in Italian football.

In Europe’s top five leagues, the 26-year-old is part of an elite club of just two players to reach double figures from midfield over the last two seasons, along with Manchester City sensation Phil Foden.

It is believed that he has a £51 million release clause in his current contract and many believe that a move to the Premier League is one that he is seemingly interested in making in the summer.

Now amid the speculation – Kevin Strootman has come out and backed his international team-mate to make a big move: “Koopmeiners and Zirkzee are doing very well,” Strootman told Radio TV Serie A, as transcribed by Tuttomercatoweb.

“Atalanta and Bologna are teams to be treated with great respect. I read that many top clubs would like them, they will also have their ambitions.

“They are players with extra quality and I hope they will also show it at the European Championship.

“I think after that they can choose wherever they want to go, I’m sure they are ready for a big leap.”

Koopmeiners, capped 21 times by the Netherlands national team, recently said he hoped Atalanta were able to attract a ‘good fee’ from his sale in the future.

‘I hope Atalanta gets a good fee for me because I had a wonderful time in Bergamo,’ he added.

‘I would be lying if I said i didn’t hear the news about the interest from Juventus and Premier League clubs have shown to me.’
