West Ham have enquired about the availability of Atalanta midfielder Teun Koopmeiners, according to CalcioAtalanta.

The 24-year-old is highly-rated by the Serie A outfit and would no doubt be a difficult target to get over the line as a result, especially as there is only a few weeks left before the summer transfer window closes.

It is believed Koopmeiners would be used to operate alongside either Declan Rice or Tomas Soucek as Moyes scours the market for additional bodies in that area of his squad.

The arrival of Flynn Downes from Swansea City earlier in the summer appeared to have done just that, but it seems Moyes still isn’t satisfied with just three central midfielders to choose from.

The Netherlands international joined Atalanta from AZ Alkmaar last summer and went on to play 43 games in all competitions, scoring three goals.

With three years left on his La Dea contract, it’s fair to assume he wouldn’t come cheap if West Ham were able to come to an agreement, although a bid is yet to be made official.

As things stand, it’s just an enquiry to see whether Atalanta would be willing to part ways with their midfielder.
