AZ playmaker Teun Koopmeiners has reportedly emerged as a summer transfer target for Manchester United and Arsenal.

The Red Devils were rumoured to be interested in securing the services Koopmeiners last summer and believed to be also in the market for his services once again before the end of the transfer window.

The 22-year-old has been in stunning form for his Dutch team during the current campaign, founding back of the net 16 times and providing three assists in 42 games in all competitions.

The former Netherlands Under-21 international largely operates as a holding playmaker, however, ended the 2019-20 Eredivisie campaign with 11 goals in 25 games.

According to AZ Fanpage, the Gunners are keen on a move for Koopmeiners this summer transfer window, with Gunners head-coach Mikel Arteta keen to add ‘reinforcements’ in the middle of the park.

AZ’s number eight could allegedly be available as little as €15m (£13.5m) ahead of the 2020-21 season due to the financial impact of the coronavirus outbreak.

Man Utd and Arsenal also go head-to-head to sign Barcelona attacker Antoine Griezmann who has failed to justify his £107m price tag and has been tipped to depart from Nou Camp ahead of the 2020/21 season.
