Journalist Carlo Garganese has suggested that Juventus would be happy to cash in on Tottenham target Weston McKennie in January.

At the moment, McKennie’s full focus will be on the World Cup, with the United States sealing passage to the knockout stages and set to take on the Netherlands on Saturday for a place in the quarter-finals of the competition.

However, if reports over recent weeks are to be believed, the midfielder’s days in Turin appear to be numbered, with a January move alleged to be on the cards for the 24-year-old.

Calciomercato reported two weeks ago that Juve would be willing to sell McKennie for around €25m- €30m (£21.5m-£26m) in January amidst Spurs’ interest.

La Repubblica then reported a few days ago that while the former Schalke man is surplus to requirements at the Allianz Stadium, his future might depend on what happens with Adrien Rabiot.

The report suggested that if Rabiot does not sign a new contract with Juve, thus forcing the Serie A giants to cash in on the Frenchman, McKennie might stay put at the club.

However, Garganese believes that Massimiliano Allegri’s men will be happy to move the American on and backed Fabio Paratici to raid his former club once again.

The journalist told GiveMeSport: “McKennie is somebody that they see as disposable, he’s not hugely popular with the fans either so he’s definitely someone that’s gettable.

“Of course, Paratici signed Kulusevski, he signed Bentancur, they’ve done business together so it’s definitely something that could make sense.”

The McKennie to Spurs speculation makes sense for a lot of reasons, not least because of Paratici’s relationship with Juve, the Bianconeri’s willingness to sell and the player’s fit for Conte’s system.

However, there is still plenty of time left until January and the situation could well change by the time the transfer window opens. There is also the possibility of McKennie’s transfer value rising if he shines for the United States in the knockout stages in Qatar.
