Chelsea is set to hijack Tottenham’s dream January transfer plan as Graham Potter eyes N’Golo Kante heir

Jorginho and N’Golo Kante are expected to leave Chelsea at the end of the season, therefore the club is searching for a replacement. Tottenham target might be the perfect addition. According to rumours, Chelsea and Tottenham have fought over the Juventus star Weston McKennie. The 24-year-old has long been strongly linked to a move to the Premier Association.

The American has recently expressed interest in his government after impressing the US in Qatar. He played a crucial role in every World Cup installation for his nation, leading Gregg Berhalter’s team to the round of 16.

McKennie made a sincere effort, but the Netherlands’ thorough demonstration rendered the USA dumbfounded. He attracted Graham Potter’s attention, according to the Italian publication Gazzetta Dello Game, and the Blues are now prepared to match Spikes’ asking price to sign him.

Due to the unquestionably uncertain futures of Jorginho and N’Golo Kante, who both have contracts at Stamford Bridge expire near the end of the season, Chelsea is rumored to be searching for a new midfielder. When it comes to their respective free transfers in the summer, the couple will be eligible to begin pre-contract discussions with unfamiliar clubs in January.

Despite reports claiming otherwise, Italy Worldwide’s agent Joao Santos has stated that his client is focused on securing a long-term future in west London. Regarding Kante, meanwhile, the France international has been sidelined at Chelsea for more than a few months due to a physical problem, raising the question of whether the team would attempt to keep him healthy.

Both have not yet signed augmentations, thus they passed on Chelsea with very little assurance regarding their futures. Declan Rice, Jude Bellingham, and Moises Caicedo have all recently been strongly linked to relocations to west London, but McKennie has emerged as the less expensive alternative.

The American’s contract in Turin expires in 2025, and Juventus has set a € 30 million (£ 25.8 million) sticker price on him, according to Calciomercato. According to the story, the Old Woman is currently dealing with financial problems, and as a result, they might decide to take advantage of McKennie.

Brad Friedel urged Tottenham to recruit the Juventus star to N17 following the US’s scoreless draw with England during the World Cup. The former Spikes goalkeeper remarked to Online Club: “On the off chance that the finances work, Tottenham should be in for McKennie.

He is currently the best central midfielder the US has had. He displayed his talent against England, and I believe he would be a great addition to any powerful European team.
