Juventus American midfielder Weston McKennie could leave the Italian club in January. The 23-year-old has had a season of ups and downs at Juventus, since his arrival from the Schalke Germans. This is why the "Old Lady" wants to sell the services of the player, despite his desire to fight for a starting place in the team of Massimiliano Allegri.
The situation of the Juventus player has attracted the attention of the English Leeds, who seem to be making an official offer for the midfielder. Coach Marcelo Bielsa is preparing for the fight for survival, as his team is in 16th place in the Premier League rankings, just 2 places away from relegation.
Juventus is thought to be asking around milionë 20m for the player's services, a figure that is affordable by Leeds. Weston possesses the right physical potential, and is a midfielder who covers a lot of space on the green. This is exactly what Leeds needs, although for McKennie, this transfer could be considered a step back in his career. However, the player may view this potential transfer as an opportunity to prove himself in a new league.
Coach Marcelo Bielsa is not a fan of the approaches in January, but the injuries of key players in his team, seem to have left no solution to the coach.
Meanwhile according to SunSport reports, Leeds are also interested in buying Chilean Ben Brereton Diaz from Blackburn Rovers. But at the same time, the English look like they will lose Calvin Phillips, who even if he does not leave in January, will most likely leave the club at the end of the season. Interest is high for his card from Liverpool and Manchester United.
