Report: A permanent offer from Tottenham for winger may be imminent

According to new reports from Italy, Samuel Iling-Junior is getting closer to securing a move to Tottenham Hotspur, and the player is preparing to say ‘goodbye’ to Juventus in the upcoming transfer window.

Tottenham’s injury issues have depleted their squad and exposed the severe lack of squad depth Ange Postecoglou has right now. It’s no surprise, then, that the club has been linked with a slew of players ahead of next month’s transfer activity.

It has been suggested Postecoglou is looking to sign a wide attacker in January, and Juventus winger Samuel Iling-Junior is thought to be high on the shortlist.

TuttoMercatoWeb recently claimed Spurs were at the front of the queue for the 20-year-old, while Calcio Mercato suggested the North London side may be able to acquire their target for as little as €18m (£15.5m).

Spurs getting closer to signing Samuel Iling-Junior

Now, the latest from TuttoMercatoWeb suggests Spurs are making inroads with a potential deal, and that the player himself should be preparing his farewells as he looks destined to swap Turin for London.

It is thought a “goodbye is around the corner” for Iling-Junior, as all parties look to get the deal processed. Juventus director Cristiano Giuntoli has apparently already “received the respect and interest” from a number of English clubs for his player.

Spurs are said to have been interested for “some time” now, and it is suggested a “permanent offer” may be imminent. It seems the Italian side are not keen on any loan proposal, and regard a sale as a more “concrete” solution.

Spurs Web Opinion

It feels like this is picking up some traction now, but I am still very much on the fence as to whether Iling-Junior is the way to go for us. I think we need someone with that little more pedigree and proven ability.
