Weston McKennie has ‘strong interest’ from Tottenham Hotspur, as per Sport Mediaset.
The Juventus player hasn’t convinced Massimo Allegri, and therefore the manager has not included him in his plans for this season.
Allegri’s stance on McKennie is discussed by Calciomercato, who say the Turin club’s boss would prefer to replace the 22-year-old with another midfielder.
It’s claimed the US midfielder isn’t short of suitors, but his €30-35m valuation ‘does not make the situation particularly simple’.
Tottenham’s interest is down to managing director of football, Fabio Paratici, who signed McKennie for Juve last summer.
It’s said Spurs are ready to offer Tanguy Ndombele as part of the deal for the American, while there’s the suggestion they would also be willing to sign the latter through other formulas.
One such formula is reported by another Italian website, Calciomercato.it, and they stress the track leading to Nuno Espírito Santo’s side is ‘gaining ground’.
Paratici ‘highly esteems the player’, but ‘there is an obstacle to the negotiation’. Spurs will only say ‘yes’ to McKennie if he’s made available to them on a loan deal. This formula doesn’t convince Juventus.
The three outlets point out Tottenham’s interest in McKennie, but Calciomercato and Calciomercato.it explain the different formulas they propose to sign the Juve man.
