Tottenham Hotspur: Italian source shares big McKennie update -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

According to Italian sources, a major Tottenham Hotspur transfer update has come to light involving Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie.

The Lowdown: Spurs long-linked…

The Lilywhites have long been interested in the former Schlake star, according to reports, and you can trace links all the way back to 2020.

McKennie, during his time in the Bundesliga, was allegedly turning Tottenham’s head before he opted to join Serie A powerhouses Juve instead.

Commenting at the time, former Spurs striker Darren Bent called the USA international a would-be ‘very Spursy signing‘, and it appears the Premier League side’s interest hasn’t waned.

The Latest: Tottenham ready offer…

According to TuttoJuve, Spurs, and by extension their transfer chief Fabio Paratici are ‘ready to offer’ around €30 million (£26m) for his services this summer.

They also say the north Londoners are rethinking signing McKennie who is an ‘old passion’ for manager Antonio Conte.

The Verdict: Make it happen?

Conte apparently wants to sign two new midfielders this summer amid a plethora of other transfer demands and Juve’s ace may well be an astute option, even despite Bent’s Spursy comment.

While he is hardly an untouchable under Massimiliano Allegri, MLS correspondent and USA national team critic Chris Smith of 90min has drawn attention to his brilliant performances at international level.

The reporter has lavished praise on McKennie, branding the starlet a ‘pressing machine’ and ‘supremely underrated’ attacking threat for his country.

His young age indicates he may only get better, and for just £26m, the price tag would be a fairly reasonable one if Juventus agree to it.
