Tottenham Hotspur can sign 20-year-old English winger Samuel Iling-Junior at a discounted price of €18 million in January.
According to a report by Italian outlet Calciomercato, Samuel Iling-Junior is the subject of interest from Tottenham Hotspur. And the 20-year-old winger will have a cheaper price tag in January than he did in the summer transfer window. Serie A giants Juventus will demand €18 million to part ways with the youngster this winter.
Samuel Iling-Junior is a native of Islington and spent most of his formative years in his homeland with Chelsea. But his near-decade-long stint with the West London club ended in July 2020, with Juventus snapping him. Since then, the English winger has come leaps and bounds but has yet to establish a foothold in the Serie A club’s first-team squad.
The 20-year-old made his first-team debut last year and has been in and out of the side since then. Iling-Junior has managed only 113 minutes of game time across four appearances thus far this term, providing one assist. The youngster’s situation has not gone unnoticed, with several well-known clubs interested in him.
Recent reports have linked the Englishman with many Premier League outfits. But Iling-Junior’s next destination will likely be Tottenham Hotspur. Recent reports have even pointed to the North London club being in the pole position to sign him.
Tottenham will delve into the market for a wide attacker in the January transfer window. Manor Solomon and Richarlison are long-term absentees with their respective injuries. While Brennan Johnson and Dejan Kulusevski have a high ceiling, they have not been consistent in their stints with Tottenham thus far.
Samuel Iling-Junior has thus emerged as a viable target for Tottenham. And Juventus will likely sell the 20-year-old English winger in the January transfer window. The report claims the Serie A giants were demanding €20 million to sell him this past summer, but have dropped the price to €18 million.
Iling-Junior’s discounted price tag of €18 million should appeal to Tottenham. So, it will be interesting to see if a January move to the North London club sees the light of day for the former Chelsea trainee.
