Tottenham have identified a Juventus midfielder ripping up Serie A as a replacement for Dele Alli, while a Real Betis frontman is keen on a move to Wolves, according to Tuesday’s Euro Paper Talk.
SPURS LINE UP DELE REPLACEMENT
Tottenham have reportedly identified a player who can fill the void when Dele Alli moves on, as expected.
The England midfielder has hardly featured under Jose Mourinho this season, after falling out of favour with the Spurs boss.
The England star has made just four Premier League appearances, although he has featured more in cup competitions.
French giants PSG failed with three offers to land the 24-year-old over the summer. However, they are expected to renew their interest in January – particularly if former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino takes charge in Paris.
With Alli potentially on his way in the new year, Calciomercato (as cited by SportWitness) reports that Spurs are already on the hunt for his replacement.
They claim that midfielder Weston McKennie is the man they after, with the USA star impressing on loan at Juventus from Schalke.
Juve paid €4.5m to take the 22-year-old on a temporary deal and would have to pay another €18.5m, plus bonuses, to keep him on a permanent basis.
However, McKennie’s form has seen a number of other clubs join the race for his signature, including Mourinho’s men.
The report also credits Manchester United and Chelsea with an interest, although Spurs are ahead of their Premier League rivals in the chase for the player.
McKennie, who has won 21 caps for is country, is more of a box-to-box midfielder and has scored twice in 15 appearances for Juventus this season.
He also made headlines with a stunning overhead kick in Juve’s 3-0 Champions League at Barcelona earlier this month.
While not a like for like replacement for Alli, McKennie would certainly give Mourinho another impressive midfield option, while his potential arrival could also see a January loan exit for Harry Winks.
