According to Italian outlet Tuttosport, Newcastle are considering Atalanta midfielder Teun Koopmeiners as a potential replacement for the suspended Sandro Tonali.
Tonali has now been ruled out for the rest of the season with a 10-month ban due to illegal gambling and Newcastle are on the lookout for a similar kind of midfielder to fill in for the rest of this hectic season.
It’s believed that the club have already sent representatives to discuss a possible deal for Koopmeiners who has had a very impressive start to the season with five goals and assists in nine Serie A games.
Atalanta currently value the 25-year-old at around €70m but it’s unclear whether they would be willing to negotiate that down as we are unlikely to pay such a large fee in a January window.
That said, the Netherlands international has recently signed a new deal lasting until 2028, so there is no real urgency to sell the former AZ Alkmaar man, but he is certainly someone who Newcastle admire and hope to pursue.
