The American international was signed by Juventus from Schalke last summer on loan and then permanently this summer for £18 million and managed to rack up 34 appearances in Serie A, which was an ultimately poor season for Juventus last campaign finishing fourth.
Have you been impressed by Nuno at Spurs?
Tottenham have reportedly shown an interest in him (as per Sport Witness), and despite having signed him only recently, according to a report from Gianluca Di Marzio, Juventus are apparently willing to let him go this summer. McKennie would add another body in the centre of midfield for Nuno Espirito Santo which may be required if Moussa Sissoko and Harry Winks are moved on with their futures being linked away from north London.
A lot of Spurs fans have reacted negatively on Twitter to the latest McKennie links:
What have these Tottenham fans been saying?
“Make it happen Paratici”
“Pls Lord make this happen x”
“Buy him now!!”
“BUY BUY BUY HE’S CLEAR OF WINKS AND SISSOKO”
“Would love it.”
“Bro, buy him NOW”
Two of Tottenham’s three signings this summer have come from Serie A, so being linked with another player from Italy in McKennie should come as no surprise especially with Fabio Paratici handling transfer business.
Nuno is said to be frustrated with the choice of players he has to put out at Spurs, which has led to links emerging for several players, including Domingos Duarte, who would arrive as yet another centre-back.
