Tottenham continue to be linked with Weston McKennie despite claims Juventus sent a representative to London this week.
Tottenham will secure Champions League football as long as they don’t lose to already relegated Norwich City.
Antonio Conte will be desperate for important signings this summer, but even more so when Tottenham play in the Champions League.
The telegraph claim that Conte wants two midfielders this summer, even after signing Rodrigo Bentancur in January.
One name that gets linked regularly is McKennie — and more rumors are popping up today.
Tottenham continue to be linked with Weston McKennie
Back in April, Gazzetta dello Sport reported that Conte asked Fabio Paratici to sign McKennie for him.
The USA international was signed from Paratici at Juventus and Conte appears to be a big fan.
Gazzetta dello Sport now claim that Federico Cherubini – the man who replaced Paratici as sporting director at Juventus – is currently in London.
The focus was mostly on signing Paul Pogba, Jorginho or Arsenal defender Gabriel Magalhaes.
However, as noted by Il BianconeroIt is believed that Cherubini could also discuss McKennie with Tottenham.
Paratici reportedly “loves” McKennie and could join Tottenham if Juventus achieve their goals in midfield.
Signing Pogba, Jorginho or both would certainly push McKennie down the Juventus pecking order.
McKennie, 23, has made 15 league appearances this season but suffered a season-ending injury against Villarreal in February.
McKennie will focus on getting fit and ready for pre-season training, which could end up being at Tottenham rather than Juve.
US legend Alexi Lalas compared McKennie to N’Golo Kantea player who won the Premier League under Conte at Chelsea.
Conte might want something similar in his midfield now and that’s why Tottenham are still in the game for McKennie this summer.
