Insider 'can see it happening' after Tottenham double swoop reported

Tottenham have no interest in signing Dejan Kulusevski or Weston McKennie in January.

That is according to Spurs insider John Wenham, who regularly breaks news about the club on his Lilywhite Rose social media channels.

On 8 October, Calciomercato reported Tottenham want to sign Kulusevski, 21, and McKennie, 23, from Juventus.

Kulusevski is out of favour in Turin, only starting one game this season.

McKennie has seen slightly more action, starting four games out of a possible nine.

Tottenham transfer chief Fabio Paratici has strong links with the Serie A after his time with Juventus.

However, Wenham claims these links are leading to “lazy” transfer stories about players Spurs have no interest in signing.

“This annoys me,” Wenham told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“I think we can expect it to continue as well. It’s just lazy.

“Paratici has loads of links with players in Serie A, that doesn’t mean we are interested in every player who has a good game.

“Yes, we will sign players from Italy, I can see that happening. Look at Romero in the summer. But these are two more names who I can’t see us signing.

“I would always urge a degree of caution when it comes to transfer stories from Italy or about Serie A players.

“People get carried away and ultimately get let down. McKennie, I don’t know too much about but he doesn’t strike me as having the relevant experience.

“Kulusevski, I know a bit more about but again, is he a player we need?

“I think this might just be the rumour mill turning.”

Tottenham signed Cristian Romero from Atalanta this summer.

He has already cemented himself as a key player this season.
