Juventus have made Weston McKennie available in the transfer market due to his failure to convince Massimiliano Allegri.
That’s according to Sport Mediaset, and they add the 22-year-old has ‘strong interest’ from Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur.
Dean Smith’s side wanting the midfielder is also reported by Calciomercato and they say ‘Villa challenge Tottenham’ to sign McKennie.
Despite Allegri’s stance, the midfielder wants to stay, but the Serie A side are trying to push him away, something that has made his camp unhappy.
His current situation has drawn attention from elsewhere and the USMNT player has ‘no shortage of interested clubs’. The Old Lady, for their part, value him at €30-35m.
It’s claimed Villa’s ‘cash-only offer is teasing’ the Italian club’s management as they are aware the Premier League side have no shortage of funds following Jack Grealish’s £100m sale to Manchester City.
McKennie is now the ‘goal of Aston Villa’, a year after he rejected a move to Villa Park in favour of Juventus. The Turin club would ‘like to sell’ the midfielder, but there’s suggestion he needs to be convinced if Villa are have to have a chance of signing him.
The website ends their report by stating: ‘There is turmoil, a week away from the end of the market McKennie can really go away’.
