Juventus are reportedly keen on offloading the 20-year-old to secure funds for another midfielder.
The Serie A giants are seeking a transfer fee ranging between €15-20 million, an amount deemed affordable by Tottenham as they look to bolster their squad.
Tottenham’s urgency for reinforcements stems from their ongoing injury crisis, notably the extended absences of Solomon and Perisic, coupled with Richarlison’s struggles on and off the pitch.
A left-sided attacking player is said to be one of the priorities for the club, and Iling-Junior’s versatility could provide the needed depth.
The young winger, eyeing more consistent playing time, is also reportedly eager for a move away from Juventus.
He may turn out to be decent addition to the squad, specially considering that Spurs will be able to secure his services at a reasonable price in what otherwise is a tough market.
