Tottenham and West Ham plan to move for McKennie in January


A report from CalcioMercato says Tottenham and West Ham could step in January to sign Juventus star Weston McKennie.

McKennie, 23, was heavily linked with a move to the Premier League this summer – despite having a brilliant first season at Juventus, playing 46 times.

Not only that, but the USA international has contributed nine goals – scoring six and creating three. But the arrival of Max Allegri was not good.

At least not for McKennie. He has only started four of his team’s nine games so far, having only finished 90 minutes twice for the Old Lady.

The midfielder is closing in on the exit gate with Allegri seemingly happy to sanction his exit. The Independent says he is valued at £ 40million.

Tottenham and West Ham watch McKennie: A good signing?

The report says West Ham and Spurs love McKennie, both having been linked with the ex-Schalke star this summer.

Tottenham certainly need depth in midfield. Harry Winks is linked with a move to Inter Milan and Rome, in another report from CalcioMercato.

Oliver Skipp and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg teamed up against Villa on Sunday. But the duo need a blanket, and McKennie can provide it.

Of course, he can play an offensive role, box-to-box, or as a defensive midfielder. He can even play right-back or center-back.

West Ham needs depth and their versatility would be ideal. But Tottenham could have the buying power over the Hammers.
