Weston McKennie, a midfielder for Juventus, is said to have reached a personal agreement with Jesse Marsch’s Leeds United. Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal has reportedly made a proposal for McKennie.
Weston Mckennie, a Leeds United target, is in Arsenal’s bid. According to sources, Arsenal has made Juventus a bid for USA international McKennie in the amount of €30 million (£26.5 million).
Leeds United, a Premier League rival of Arsenal, is in negotiations to sign the 24-year-old player.
Leeds is certain they will be able to sign McKennie because they are “convinced” they won’t have much opposition in the race to sign the 24-year-old. The USA international has been linked to both Arsenal and Spurs, but they look to be prioritizing other players, maybe realizing that McKennie is keen on moving to Leeds.
Weston Kckennie could be signed by the Gunners. In the last days of the remaining January transfer window, Arsenal may yet be able to beat Leeds United to Juventus for the signing of Weston McKennie.
Although the American star and Leeds have reached a personal agreement, the trade is not yet official.
Juventus and Leeds are still in contact to reach an agreement.
Therefore, Arsenal has a window of opportunity right now.
Arsenal is one of the biggest clubs in the world and a recognized brand worldwide, much like Juventus.
Since Leeds could be demoted to the Championship at the conclusion of the current season and the Gunners could win the Premier League, we believe that McKennie would find a move to the Emirates Stadium to be quite alluring.
It appears that Leeds United will sign the midfielder because Tottenham is apparently concentrating on other objectives after already signing Danjuma from Villareal this week. Antonio Conte will have hectic coming days as Spurs continue their search for a new coach before the deadline on Tuesday.
