The Lowdown: McKennie disciplined
Both Villa and Spurs were linked with a late move for the 23-year-old in the summer, however, he remained in Turin.
He’s been away with the USA during the international break but has recently been shrouded in controversy, disciplined by his country for breaking protocols.
Juventus aren’t best pleased with McKennie, and it seems as if a winter window move away could be on the cards for the £2.53m-a-year (£48,700-a-week) ace.
Should Villa make their move for McKennie?
No, look elsewhere!
The Latest: £25.7m price tag
Both clubs are ‘preparing a new mission’ for the midfielder, who has a €30m price tag (£25.7m).
The Verdict: Villa to splash the cash again?
It seems as if McKennie is on Villa sporting director Johan Lange’s radar, and it would mean the club would need to spend big again to secure his services.
Therefore, you’d expect there could be funds available for Villa to bring McKennie to the Midlands, and it appears as if Lange will try in the New Year.
