Tottenham are showing strong interest in Weston McKennie.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Tottenham are keen on Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie.
The 23-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
Juventus spent 20.5 million euros to sign the United States international from Schalke 04 in the summer of 2021. The 23-year-old has three years left on his current contract which expires in 2025.
He has banged in four goals in 29 matches for Juventus last term on all fronts.
The 23-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in United States. His record for United States is impressive. McKennie has scored 9 goals in 32 matches for United States at senior level.
Weston McKennie is one of the more likely players to be offloaded by Juventus this summer and the list of suitors in the United States international continues to grow.
Antonio Conte wants to sign a new midfielder and McKennie is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. He has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe.
The United States international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of midfielder Conte wants to target in the summer transfer window.
Tottenham are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The former Schalke 04 man will add more quality to Tottenham’s midfield.
According to the report, “Tottenham chief Fabio Paratici is keen on Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie. Football.london says Paratici held talks with the representatives of McKennie at the start of the year, over what has been described as a discrete summer deal. There has been plenty of speculation linking Tottenham with midfield targets including the likes of Christian Eriksen (Brentford) and James Ward-Prowse (Southampton). But Paratici is said to be a ‘big fan’ of McKennie and held talks in January over a potential move. Those early talks will stand Spurs in good stead should they wish to pursue the Juventus midfielder this summer, but all depends on just how well those talks between Paratici and McKennie’s representatives went. Even before news of those discussions, Spurs were being strongly linked with the 23-year-old, before they snapped up Rodrigo Bentancur instead.”
