Aston Villa, Everton, Newcastle United vying for Weston McKennie

Aston Villa, Everton, and Newcastle United have been alerted to the prospect of Weston McKennie’s availability ahead of the summer.

According to Tutto Juve, Weston McKennie might become available for sale in the summer, which has alerted a number of English sides. Aston Villa, Newcastle United, and Everton are in the case for the American midfielder, with Juventus seeking at least €20-25 million for the midfielder.

Premier League interest in McKennie

Weston McKennie continues to find himself in stressful positions with his Juventus career, as he is now one of their important players. Less than 18 months ago, the Bianconeri considered him dispensable as he joined Leeds United on a six-month loan move, where the club suffered relegation.

However, upon his return to Juventus, he quickly found himself at the centre of Massimiliano Allegri’s plans and played a key role in their return to the UEFA Champions League. However, with the manager now gone and McKennie coming up into the last year of his deal, there could be a change of guard in Turin.

The report does indicate that Juventus might be open to handing him a new deal, although a few top Premier League sides have shown interest before. His agent might have known the current status of English interest in the American, which may see the midfielder change his surroundings.

Should McKennie not sign a new deal, and with growing Premier League interest in the midfielder, Juventus might consider €20-25 million for the Serie A star. For English sides, this is a good price to consider, as it is well within range for a player who has a long-term future ahead of him.

Who are interested in McKennie?

According to the report, at least three English sides are showing an interest in McKennie ahead of the summer. Everton is one of those, and some receipt links to Kalvin Phillips tend to show they are in the market for a midfielder. Aston Villa are also keen, and they might be looking at two new midfielders in the summer, with Ross Barkley already close to signing for the club.

Finally, Newcastle United are also in the race, as the Magpies will have to reshuffle their plans after not qualifying for Europe. Hence, they might look at the €20-25 million-rated Serie A midfielder as a viable financial option to cover a significant role next season.
