Tottenham interested in Juventus midfielder who can leave this month
By Bruce Grove -

Tottenham is one of the clubs interested in signing Juventus midfielder, Weston McKennie.

The American only joined the Old Lady last summer and he was one of their best players under Andrea Pirlo.

However, the former midfielder has been sacked and replaced with Massimiliano Allegri.

He was with the squad during pre-season and would have wanted to impress his new manager, but it seems he hasn’t succeeded with that.

Il Corriere dello Sport via Football Italia claims the midfielder isn’t a serious part of Allegri’s plans and he has been told that he can leave.

Juventus has several top midfielders in their squad and they also added Manuel Locatelli to it in this transfer window.

McKennie now has to find a new home if he wants to keep playing regularly and Fabio Paratici wants to take him to London.

The report claims that Everton and Aston Villa also want to sign him, but it is the latter club that has the strongest interest in his signature.

Villa has been ambitiously splashing the cash on top talent in this transfer window and they could beat Tottenham to signing him if the Lilywhites don’t act fast.

Now this kid is worth a punt! All action, a warrior at heart, a sturdy build, he would be a good candidate for the premier league. He looked like the best player in that Juve squad on several occasions last campaign.

Scrapping a one nil win with a huge dose of good fortune amidst constant poor passing and transitions does not fill me with confidence. Yes six points from six is indisputable but the inability to impress ourselves upon opposing sides is a real worry. We nicked a penalty which was as a result of some typical Ali antics. He pushed the ball to far to the left of the keeper and left his leg trailing knowing the keeper would clip it. Apart from that we created very little else of real quality throughout the game. Our midfield is non existent in terms of controlling possession and creating openings. We need a playmaker in there and sadly the grumpy Frenchman is not going to cut muster as he believes he is to good for us and wants a galactico transfer. Can we just drop this love affair with French players. They all appear lazy, arrogant and disruptive apart from Lloris. The jury is still out for me with Nuno. Seems a mature and calming influence but unless we get a sudden flurry of new players arriving and the deadwood leaving I see another painful season ahead Levy and ENIC have reverted back to their trusted model of a “new project” signing potential instead of ready to play quality and no doubt have said to Nuno that all they want is a top four spot this season.

I think this latest “suggested” transfer is linked to the possibility of some kind of swap deal for Ndombele.

It seems unlikely to me especially when you look at the “reported” transfer activity we have had so far. I hoped (not thought) things might change once Paratici got on board, unfortunately it hasn’t. Except that Paratici thinks giving Nuno instructions from the dug out is part of his remit. I doubt that will end well.

What business have we done so far?

We sold Hart, Lamela and Toby, replaced Toby and Hart with loan signings and replaced Lamela with a “promising” youngster.

Some people may say that “Dele & Bergwijn now being given game time is like two new signings and if we keep Kane, that’s a great window for Spurs”

This is where we are as a club in a nutshell. Two existing players actually start working hard enough to merit a starting place and a wantaway striker is betrayed by our chairman and forced to see out a contract he no longer wants to honour is seen as success. I know a gentleman’s agreement is not worth the blah blah blah….but no matter how you look at this, it is yet more bad publicity for Daniel Levy and Spurs.

The Pau Torres & Jules Kounde news i think was very interesting. This is typical of our arrogant transfer strategy. This strategy is: rock up at a cash strapped club with a bag full of money and try to extract their best player. This only works if that player actually wants to play for Spurs. Both Pau & Jules didn’t fancy it, i wonder why?

My prediction for the remainder of the widow is as follows: We will be linked to many “top class” players with very little possibility of actually signing them but we will show “intention” without actually signing them. Daniel Levy’s favourite kind of deal.

It’s the power of suggestion, DL is the master of it. How else do you think we got into the European Super League club…

Got a feeling that our player search is going the same way as our Manager search did. The main targets are not knocking the door down to join us..!
