Over the weekend, the Catalan media reported Barcelona’s Ilaix Moriba has ruled out a move to Tottenham Hotspur.
The north London club allowed Moussa Sissoko to complete a move to Watford last week. The Frenchman’s exit and Moriba’s snub have seen them shift their focus to Weston McKennie.
According to Calciomercto, Juventus have made the American available in the market and are ‘considering some proposals from the Premier League’.
It’s said ‘there has been a return to the flame’ of Tottenham for the midfielder in the last few hours.
Along with Nuno Espírito Santo’s side, Aston Villa are still in the running ‘with interesting economic arguments’, while the Everton option is ‘slightly more secluded’.
It’s claimed the Serie A side ‘intend to raise’ around €30m from the former Schalke man’s sale and use those funds to bring in a new midfielder. Calciomercato say ‘substantial news could already arrive in the next few hours’.
Massimiliano Allegri insisted the 23-year-old doesn’t have to leave the Turin club, but the website says the manager ‘rejects’ the player, which is why he was left out of the squad for Juventus’ defeat to Empoli.
With Juve willing to sell, it remains to be seen whether Fabio Paratici is ready to meet the demands set by his old club for McKennie.
