Report: Spurs ready to accelerate move to land Postecoglou’s ‘dream signing’

According to Football Insider, Tottenham Hotspur are ready to accelerate a move to land Ange Postecoglou’s dream signing, Samuel Iling-Junior.

Calciomercato reported that Juventus would be willing to sell Tottenham target Samuel Iling-Junior for €20m (£17.4m) in January and many outlets have been picking up on this news since.

Juve would reportedly be open to cashing in on the England Under-21 international in January since his contract only runs until 2025 (Football Insider). The player wants to leave the Italian giants in search of regular playing time (Il Bianconero).

Italian outlet Calciomercato recently claimed that Spurs sent scouts to watch the 20-year-old in action for England U-21s in their win against Northern Ireland.

The young English winger joined Juventus in 2020 from the Chelsea youth setup but has only established himself as a fringe player so far.

He has made 22 appearances for the first team, scoring one goal and providing three assists in 671 minutes of football (Transfermarkt).

Spurs to accelerate move for Samuel Iling-Junior

According to the report by Football Insider, Tottenham are set to accelerate a move for the Juventus winger, who is said to be Ange Postecoglou’s dream signing.

The Australian manager wants a versatile attacker who can play on both wings and also fill in centrally if required. Postecoglou apparently believes that Iling-Junior fits the bill.

Spurs Web Opinion

Iling-Junior to Tottenham is gaining a lot of momentum but I am very doubtful the player will choose the North London club if he is looking for regular playing time.

Postecoglou might look to try and convince the player to come here. A return to England seems inevitable for Iling-Junior. He would be a good signing for Spurs but I’d still reserve my expectations for this signing to happen.
