Report: Man City and Newcastle enter race for 19-year-old linked with Spurs

90 min have revealed that Juventus starlet Samuel Iling-Junior, who was linked with a move to Tottenham ahead of the January transfer window, has now emerged as a target for multiple Premier League clubs.

Iling-Junior had impressed for Juventus’ youth sides since leaving the Chelsea academy to join the Italian giants back in 2020.

The youngster has played 11 times for the Old Lady’s senior side this season and has showcased his directness and energy out wide.

Tuttosport reported back in November of last year that the winger was attracting the attention of several clubs across Europe, including Spurs.

The report explained that Fabio Paratici had spearheaded the signing of Iling-Junior during his time at Juve and that the Italian was now looking to reunite with the England Under-20 international at Spurs.

However, Tottenham’s pursuit of the teenager ended when he put pen to paper on a new contract until 2027 with the Serie A giants back in December.

90min have now suggested that Iling-Junior might be on the move in the summer, given Juve’s financial plight, with several Premier League clubs eyeing a potential move for the player.

The publication asserts that Newcastle United and Manchester City are both keen on snapping up the attacker while his former club Chelsea are also monitoring the situation.

Iling-Junior is also said to be on the radars of Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund but it is explained that Massimiliano Allegri’s men will not sell the youngster at a discount, given that he only signed a new deal a few months ago.

Spurs Web Opinion

Tottenham likely looked at Iling-Junior as an interesting market opportunity since his contract at Juve was running down last year.

I do not think the North Londoners will get involved in a bidding war with the likes of Man City and Newcastle for the 19-year-old.
