CM: Milan set sights on AZ Alkmaar captain compared to Mark van Bommel
By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan head scout Geoffrey Monacada has identified Teun Koopmeiners of AZ Alkmaar as a summer target, a report claims.

Among the teams in Europe known for playing an entertaining and energetic style of football built around young players and an exciting system there are of course Leipzig and Salzburg, but AZ Alkmaar belong in that category too and it’s thanks to players like Koopmeiners.

The 22-year-old is already the captain of the Eredivisie side and has 16 goals and three assists in 42 appearances across the league, cup and Europa League this season and as a holding midfielder he could slot perfectly into the current side.

According to what Calciomercato.com are reporting, Geoffrey Moncada – head of Milan’s scouting department – has identified the Netherlands international as an ideal midfield reinforcement for the upcoming window.

The report cites his ability as a penalty taker, set piece specialist and a man with a great shot from outside the box. He has also been compared to former Rossoneri star Mark van Bommel in the past, and Tuttosport claimed earlier today that he would cost €15m, with Milan interested.
