Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Alasdair Gold has now shared a ‘big’ transfer update in which he makes a claim involving Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie.
The Lowdown: Spurs set to be busy?
The Lilywhites are set to back manager Antonio Conte as the summer window officially opens for business, coming after he guided Spurs to a previously unprecedented finish in the Premier League top four.
Champions League qualification was swiftly followed by a £150 million equity increase and two confirmed arrivals.
Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster recently joined the north Londoners on Bosman deals and reports suggest they’re far from done there.
The Latest: Gold shares ‘big’ update involving McKennie…
Football.london journalist Gold, sharing a ‘big’ update on Twitter, claims club chief Fabio Paratici is expected to make an approach to sign McKennie from Juve this summer.
Writing in his piece, the reporter explains Tottenham’s sporting director is a big fan and talks were held in the January window over a move.
The Verdict: Get it done?
As Conte reportedly eyes midfield moves, we believe the USA international could be a real asset, especially taking into account his brilliant performances beyond club level.
McKennie shines for his country, as explained by 90min MLS expert Chris Smith, who has lavished the ‘supremely underrated’ star as a ‘machine’ who can become an ‘elite’ player (Twitter).
Valued at around £34 million, his price tag is also an attainable one for Spurs as the 23-year-old also would come with a long shelf life and many years ahead of a promising career.
