Earlier today, we covered claims from Italy that Tottenham Hotspur will make an attempt to sign Juventus’ Samuel Iling-Junior in January.

This is backed up by Tuttosport, who also provide the latest on the north London club’s pursuit of the 20-year-old.

Ryan Sessegnon, Manor Solomon and Ivan Perišić are the Tottenham players who operate on the left and they have been out injured. Richarlison, who can also be used on the left wing, is also out of action.

These setbacks have seen Spurs think about strengthening the left side in January and this is where Iling-Junior would fit in.

It’s said the Premier League side have contacted Juve for the England U21 international, who is of ‘great interest’ to Ange Postecoglou.

The winger, who can also operate as a left wing-back, has struggled for regular game time this season and that has convinced the Old Lady to part ways with him.

The report states the Serie A side value him at €20m, which ‘did not scare’ Tottenham.

Tuttosport add there will be new contacts between the parties to make sure the deal is on the right track to take shape.

If Iling-Junior were to be sold, Juventus would invest those funds to strengthen the squad in the next window.
