The Lowdown: McKennie profiled
He made his loan move to Juventus from Schalke permanent this summer in a deal worth £18.45m.
Should Villa make their move for McKennie?
No, look elsewhere!
The Latest: Villa bid
The report added that McKennie ‘did not accept’ a move to West Ham and also ‘doesn’t like’ the sound of a Villa Park switch.
However, they finish their story by saying that might change before the end of the month, so a deal could be one to keep a close eye on.
The Verdict: Avoid
If McKennie doesn’t like the sound of a Villa Park switch, then Johan Lange and co should end Villa’s interest straight away.
The club have managed to lure the likes of Emi Buendia and Leon Bailey to the Midlands this summer, so if McKennie isn’t keen, perhaps Villa should look elsewhere.
The report claims that McKennie might have a change of heart in the final days, but it sounds as if he wants a move to Tottenham, so Villa shouldn’t wait around and play second best.
