Tottenham are advised to launch a £ 51m double attack on Juventus for Weston McKennie and Dejan Kulusevski.
Sports director Fabio Paratici is expected to be a busy man again when the January window opens and numerous names will be surrounded to join the club. However, it seems that the Juve duo are really achievable goals.
Calciomercato reported that Sweden is moving forward Kulusevski Max Allegri still has to convince that he is worthy of regular first-team football, as Juve spent 40 million euros on the player two years ago.
The report adds that Spurs will attempt to sign the striker on loan with an obligation to buy for an amount similar to what Juventus paid for him.
As for McKennie, who is also a destination for West Ham, the price should not be less than 20 million euros. Juve are looking for immediate buyers based on the player’s reported “behavior outside the field”.
Paratici knows the player well and brought him to Turin during his time at Juve.
Signing the two players would mean a € 60m double deal as Tottenham try to get back into the mix for regular Champions League qualification.

Mourinho aims to attack the old club Spurs
Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho is reportedly considering raiding his old club Tottenham over promising young goalkeeper Joshua Oluwayemi.
Mourinho, who now looks after the Serie A giant Roma, should rate the 20-year-old very highly. In fact, he often has it in Spurs’ First team training before his somewhat surprising release last season.
Oluwayemi, who is currently part of Nigeria’s senior team, will no longer have a contract at the end of the season. To do this, he could sign a preliminary contract with a foreign club in January.
The talented stopper should also be of interest to Benfica and a number of German teams, including Stuttgart.
The former England youth international grew up in Essex but qualified for Nigeria through his family.
He made it through the ranks in north London but is expected to switch to regular first-team football.
The signing of Pierluigi Gollini also brought Oluwayemi further into the pecking order.
The only hope for the young goalkeeper is that Tottenham decide to move from Hugo Lloris next summer if the veteran French star is out of contract.
