Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly been linked with a move for 19-year-old Juventus winger Samuel Iling-Junior.
According to a report from Italian publication Tuttosport, Samuel Iling-Junior is on the radar of a number of clubs. And Antonio Conte is keen on bring the the 19-year-old prodigy to Tottenham Hotspur.
The talented youngster joined Juventus from Chelsea in 2020 and is expected to develop into a key player for the Italian outfit. Iling-Junior is prodigiously talented, and the Italian outfit might look to hold on to him for the long run. He recently starred even as Juventus faltered in the UEFA Champions League.
The English prodigy has a contract with Juventus until the summer of 2023, and he will be able to leave on a free transfer at the end of the season. It will be interesting to see whether the Bianconeri can agree on a contract renewal with the player.
The 19-year-old has the potential to develop into a top class player. And it is no surprise that top English clubs like Tottenham Hotspur are looking to take advantage of Iling-Junior’s contract situation and sign him.
If the teenage prodigy refuses to sign an extension, Juventus might look to cash in on him for a reasonable price. It makes no sense for them to wait until the summer and then lose him on a free transfer,
Brighton are reportedly in the chase as well and it will be interesting to see if they can fend off the competition from Tottenham to secure his services. The 19-year-old could prove to be a solid long-term investment, especially if he is available on a bargain.
Iling-Junior will be able to negotiate pre-contract agreements with foreign clubs when the January transfer window opens. And it will be interesting to see if Tottenham decide to make their move in order to steal a march on their rivals.
The Londoners could definitely use more depth and quality in the wide areas. But the 19-year-old might struggle to break into Antonio Conte’s first-team plans from the get-go.
At Brighton, Iling-Junior is likely to get more opportunities and the Seagulls could use a wide player especially if Leandro Trossard decides to move on in January amid interest from Newcastle United. The Belgian will be out of contract in the summer as well.
