Leeds: Sky Sports share possible Weston McKennie turning point

Leeds: Sky Sports share possible Weston McKennie turning point - Leeds United News

Leeds United target Weston McKennie could miss Juventus’ clash with Monza on Sunday, amid ongoing transfer speculation, Sky Sports report.

The Lowdown: Opening offer

The Whites appear to be open to the idea of bringing in a new midfielder before Tuesday’s deadline and seemingly have McKennie on their radar.

An opening bid worth €28m (£24.6m) has reportedly been made by Elland Road officials, with Fabrizio Romano claiming that personal terms have already been agreed.

Juventus are thought to be holding out for an agreement closer to €35m (£30.8m), and it looks as if a transfer may gather pace over the coming days.

The Latest: Sky Sports update

Sky Sports Italy shared a story late on Wednesday evening regarding McKennie’s future, highlighting Leeds’ opening offer.

They added that ‘the deal could reach a turning point and that the right day for closing could be that of Monday 30 January’, which may see the midfielder miss Juventus’ meeting with Monza a day earlier.

The Verdict: Fingers crossed

Mateusz Klich sealed an emotional Elland Road exit earlier this month, so there definitely appears to be room for another midfielder in Jesse Marsch’s squad.

Tyler dams, Marc Roca and Adam Forshaw are the club’s only senior defensive and central midfield options on the books, with Adams and Forshaw potentially both missing this weekend’s FA Cup trip to Accrington Stanley.

Therefore, McKennie, who can play in a variety of midfield roles, could be a shrewd signing late in the window as he would offer plenty of experience at the highest level for both club and country and has already played alongside Adams and Brenden Aaronson for the USA.
