Report: Fresh developments give Tottenham boost in midfielder pursuit; club now in talks

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur have been monitoring several midfield targets ahead of the upcoming transfer window.

According to the latest from Football Insider, Spurs are exploring the potential signing of Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie this summer.

This interest comes after Aston Villa’s negotiations with the American international have hit a roadblock, providing the Lilywhites with an opportunity to secure the midfielder’s signature.

Initially, McKennie seemed set for a move to Villa Park as part of a swap deal involving Douglas Luiz and Samuel Iling-Junior.

However, talks have slowed, leaving an opening for Tottenham to step in.

The report claims that McKennie has priced himself out of a move to Villa and Tottenham are now in talks over a potential deal.

Spurs have reportedly engaged in discussions to sign the 25-year-old for a cut-price fee of around £15 million, as the midfielder has entered the final year of his contract with Juventus.

Despite these developments, renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano previously dispelled rumours linking McKennie to the Lilywhites.

Romano clarified that Tottenham are not actively pursuing the versatile midfielder at this time.

But as per Football Insider’s report, Spurs are very much keen on the player and are working on a deal.

His recent performances at Juventus, following a challenging loan spell with Leeds United, highlighted his significant contributions in midfield.

Last season, McKennie registered 10 assists in 38 appearances across all competitions for the Old Lady, showcasing his value as a dynamic and influential player.

Despite the uncertainty surrounding McKennie, the Lilywhites remain committed to improving their midfield options.
