Tottenham Hotspur like Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

Spurs chief Fabio Paratici signed the 23-year-old for the Turin club from Schalke in 2020 and now has the player in his sights for the north London club.

New Tottenham manager Antonio Conte also ‘appreciates him a lot’ and believes McKennie can be ‘the new Vidal’.

The American impressed in his debut season in Italy, managing six goals and three assists in 46 appearances.

He failed to impress Massimiliano Allegri at the start of this season, but has managed to gain the manager’s confidence and is now a regular in the Italian’s starting lineup.

It’s claimed McKennie was ‘destined to leave in January’ until recently, but an exit from the Turin club in the winter market is not ‘so obvious anymore’.

Despite the change in stance, Gazzetta state ‘anything can happen’ if the Serie A side receive a ‘good offer’.

They don’t mention what constitutes a ‘good offer’, but do state to ‘watch out for Tottenham’ as both Paratici and Conte are keen on McKennie.
