The departure of Weston McKennie from Juventus is imminent. Additionally, Italian journalist Ciro Venerato has suggested Tottenham as a possible destination, which has been reported by Tutto Juve.
According to the article, the 24-year-old American midfielder has his heart set on joining Tottenham. The question of whether or not the Spurs will make a bid to sign him is still open.
The 24-year-old’s time at Juventus has been uneven. Leaving the Serie A club may be the best thing for him right now. Even the Italian mega clubs are ready to cash in on him. In the next months, McKennie will likely try to negotiate a transfer to Tottenham. Moreover, he may prove to be a valuable resource for Antonio Conte.
There is a lack of depth in the midfield, and the Italian manager has to address that. The American midfielder will strengthen his midfield by providing defensive cover, athleticism, drive, and inventiveness. The 24-year-old might benefit from working with a world-class coach like Conte. The midfielder hasn’t reached his full potential yet, but the Tottenham boss may be able to help him get there.
The move of the Schalke midfielder to Juventus was met with great hopes. Although he has shown flashes of brilliance, he has yet to become a reliable contributor for the Serie A powerhouses. The player could benefit from starting again. The shift in priorities might be precipitated by a transfer to Tottenham, who are interested in buying him.
It remains to be seen whether Tottenham is willing to pay up for the 24-year-old, who has the technical and physical credentials to succeed in English football. The team from north London has a lot of talented midfielders. However, Conte should inject some diversity into his team.
Compared to players like Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur, McKennie brings a unique set of skills to the table. For the Spurs, he may represent a promising prospect. Will Tottenham attempt to sign the player this month? That’s the big question. If they can make the appropriate signings in January, they may be able to finish in the top four and earn a spot in next season’s Champions League.
