What a Juventus source said regarding Tottenham and Iling-Junior
The journalist speculated on Ranks FC that the winger will be reasonably priced during the winter transfer window.
Jones stated, “Juan Samuel Iling-Junior of Juventus is also being linked.” “I just wanted to check with someone about this, and he’s a Juve contact. He said, ‘€15m-€20m,’ so I messaged him about it.
“Well, that’s not a bad deal; this is a player who came up through the English system and who clearly moved overseas when he was younger in order to challenge and push himself.”
Iling-Junior progressed through Chelsea’s ranks before choosing to return to Juventus in 2020. While he has had some successful times in Turin, he is having difficulty getting regular minutes under Massimiliano Allegri.
This season, he has only made four substitute appearances in Serie A, contributing one assist.
In the past, Spurs have benefited greatly from acquiring unwanted Juve players; Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur have both turned out to be wise acquisitions.
However, because Iling-Junior is not as experienced in the first team as the Englishman is, there would be a far higher element of risk.
He has nevertheless shown himself to be a flexible option at Juventus, playing both midfield and left wing-back.
