According to the report, “Tottenham boss Antonio Conte is eyeing Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie. Conte is a big admirer of £17m-rated McKennie and is keen to bring him to Tottenham in January, says Calciomercato.com. Spurs’ sporting director Fabio Paratici, 49, also rates McKennie highly, having initially signed him for Juventus on loan in August 2020.

The Bianconeri were prepared to let him leave in the summer for a fee upwards of £20m, despite having only made his loan permanent in March.”
