The midfield department of the Everton squad needs quality additions this summer.
Everton are poised to land AZ Alkmaar midfielder Teun Koopmeiners, according to the football transfer rumours in British media.
The 22-year-old has a valid contract with AZ Alkmaar until June 2023.
In total, he has scored 26 goals and supplied 10 assists from 110 AZ Alkmaar matches.
The 22-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Netherlands. As a member of Netherlands national football team, Koopmeiners won 13 caps and he scored 3 goals.
Teun Koopmeiners will be high in demand this summer, with him having enjoyed a sublime season for AZ this term.
By the club’s own admission, AZ Alkmaar midfielder Koopmeiners is Everton’s transfer target.
Everton have built a reputation for recruiting young talent from within Europe, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
Teun Koopmeiners is a long-term target of Everton and could be a decent addition for Carlo Ancelotti’s side.
Everton are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
Teun Koopmeiners would provide a good variety to Everton’s midfield.
According to the report, “AZ Alkmaar captain Teun Koopmeiners is interesting Everton. The Sun says Toffees’ director of football Marcel Brands is said to be a big fan of Koopmeiners, who has been an important part of the team who were giving Ajax a run for their money in the Dutch league this season. AZ Alkmaar were level on points with Ajax at the top before the Eredivisie was scrapped, only behind on goal difference. The 22-year-old has also been a permanent fixture in the Netherlands Under-21 team. He played 42 games for AZ Alkmaar this season, scoring 16 goals and providing three assists.”

It would take a huge offer from Everton to prise the 22-year-old midfielder from AZ Alkmaar.
The 22-year-old is certainly a player that would strengthen the current Everton squad and would be a good buy in the summer transfer window.
Everton fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.
How strong that interest is and whether Everton will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
