Tottenham now favourites to land 25-year-old; talks have taken place, fee agreed – report

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur are accelerating their transfer activities ahead of the upcoming window, with a keen interest in signing Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie.

Recent developments suggest that Spurs have overtaken Aston Villa in the race to secure the American international, according to Football Insider.

The report claims that the North London outfit has moved quickly to hijack the deal by agreeing a cut-price fee of around £15 million for the American.

This deal positions Tottenham as the frontrunner to sign McKennie, potentially disrupting Villa’s plans.

McKennie, whose contract with Juventus expires in June next year, has entered the final year of his current deal.

Spurs have already begun discussions with Juventus regarding the transfer, aiming to finalise the signing this summer.

McKennie’s previous loan spell in the Premier League with Leeds United during the 2022-23 season was less than stellar; he made 20 appearances, including 16 starts, but only registered one assist as Leeds faced relegation.

Upon returning to Juventus, however, McKennie found his form again. He made 38 appearances last season across all competitions, providing 10 assists.

This resurgence has made him a highly appealing target for Tottenham as they look to enhance their midfield options.

Spurs’ proactive approach demonstrates their ambition to strengthen their squad for the upcoming season.

Adding McKennie would bring a dynamic and creative presence to their midfield, providing the depth needed for a competitive campaign.

As negotiations progress, the fans will be eager to see if the Lilywhites can finalise the deal and officially bring Weston McKennie to North London.
