Ahead of the January transfer window, the club have been linked with Juventus and United States international midfielder Weston Mckennie as Nuno Espirito Santo looks to strengthen his squad.
According to Calcio Mercato, Juventus midfielder McKennie is available for around £25 million this summer, a fee that could be seen as a snip within the modern day transfer market and represents truly outstanding value.
The former Schalke man enjoyed a fine campaign with the Italian side last term, bagging five goals and two assists in 34 Serie A matches, has regularly seen himself omitted under Massimiliano Allegri, who replaced Andrea Pirlo this summer, in the first choice XI with the Italian opting to choose the likes of Adrien Rabiot, Rodrigo Bentancur and new signing Manuel Locatelli in the central midfield starting berths.
Should Spurs sign McKennie?
The United States international is an energetic, technically gifted and dynamic player and would be an intriguing signing for Nuno Espirito Santo if signed, capable of playing as either a number six, eight and ten. If signed, he would compete with the likes of Pierre Emile Hojberg, Oliver Skipp, Harry Winks, Tanguy Ndombele and Dele Alli for a starting position within Santo’s midfield.
What did these Spurs fans make of the transfer link?
“This must happen”
“Skipp is a lot better than him. Targeting him says a lot about our ambition. I mean, what does he do really?”
“Rubbish !!! can’t even carry Winks water bottle”
“Undisciplined problematic player, no thanks”
“Weston and Skipp my goodness”
West Ham have also been linked with a potential move for McKennie, who could be a possible successor to Declan Rice, who seems likely to leave the London Stadium next summer.
But judging by what Spurs fans have had to say, it seems like opinion is divided.
