Tottenham in talks to sign playmaker with 10 assists last season

By Saikat -

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for the Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie.

The American international has been linked with a move to the Premier League this summer and Aston Villa are keen on signing him. However, the American international has now turned down the opportunity to join the West Midlands club and a report from Football Insider claims that Tottenham have held talks with Juventus regarding a £15 million move for the midfielder.

The 25-year-old central midfielder will add goals and creativity to the Tottenham side if he joins the club this summer. He picked up 10 assists in all competitions last season and he has played in England before with Leeds United. It will be interesting to see if Tottenham can secure an agreement to sign him. They need more depth in the midfield, especially if Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg leaves the club this summer. The Denmark international has fallen down the pecking order at the North London club and he needs to move on in search of regular playing time.

The Juventus midfielder seems like the ideal replacement and it remains to be seen whether all parties can come to an agreement. McKennie will be tempted to join a club like Tottenham. They have an ambitious project and talented squad. They could be challenging for trophies in the coming seasons and he will look to prove himself in English football with them.

The midfielder is entering his peak years and he will want to compete at the highest level. The Londoners could provide him with that platform in the coming seasons. Signing him for £15 million could prove to be a superb investment and he could develop into a key player for the club.
