According to Italian journalist Nicola Balice, Tottenham are interested in signing Weston McKennie this summer.
The Lowdown: Not much time left
However, Nuno Espirito Santo may still be looking for some new arrivals after such a positive start to the campaign, and there is now just a week left before the end of the transfer window.
The Latest: Spurs eye McKennie
Of course, managing director Fabio Paratici knows Serie A like the back of his hand, and he now appears keen to add a third addition from that league after Romero and Gollini.
New Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri is not convinced by the USA international, and he could therefore move on from Turin. Aston Villa are the ‘most interested’ in the 22-year-old, but ‘there is also Tottenham’.
The Verdict: On the up
McKennie made the switch to Juve from Schalke in 2020, initially on loan, before making the transfer permanent this summer. He made 46 appearances in all competitions last term for the Italian giants, scoring six goals and providing three assists (Transfermarkt).
Would you like to sign McKennie?
It is surprising he is not fancied at all by Allegri despite him playing such a big role in an albeit underwhelming campaign for Juventus last time out. Andrea Pirlo was the boss last season, and he knows a thing or two about what it takes to be a top midfielder.
Depending on how much he would cost, he could be a good signing for Nuno and co.
