Great News: Tottenham has won the race to sign ‘sensational’ player

Tottenham now lead the race to sign Juventus youngster Samuel Iling-Junior ahead of Newcastle United, sources have told Football Insider.

Before the January transfer window opens, Spurs have set their sights on the 20-year-old winger.

Ange Postecoglou is keen to strengthen his attacking unit and is working hard to finalize a deal for the talented player who was born in London.

Football Insider reported on Friday, December 8, that Juventus is open to receiving bids for Iling-Junior that total about £20 million.

Due to manager Massimiliano Allegri’s limited options following Paul Pogba’s suspension, the Serie A powerhouses are looking to sell the young player and raise money in order to acquire a new midfield player.

Iling-Junior has a contract with Turin that expires in2025, so Juventus wants to get rid of him in January before his value drops.

Iling-Junior expressed interest in returning to England with both Tottenham and Newcastle, but sources have now told Football Insider that Spurs are the overwhelming favorites to close a deal.

Tottenham is willing to match Juventus’ £20 million asking price, but Newcastle is unlikely to match Spurs’ offer due to their stringent January transfer window budget.

Newcastle is constrained by Financial Fair Play rules despite the wealth of their owners, having spent heavily in recent windows.

Early in the upcoming month, Spurs are anticipated to submit a bid for the former Chelsea academy standout.

During his three years in Italy, Iling-Junior has made 22 first-team appearances and scored once for the Old Lady.

Done Deal: London rival willing to accept Tottenham offer

If a bid is made, Everton is willing to sell Ben Godfrey to Tottenham in January, according to sources who spoke with Football Insider.

Spurs are looking to add a new center-back in January after Micky van de Ven and Eric Dier went down with injuries recently.

Recently, the North London team has expressed interest in Jarrad Branthwaite and Godfrey, two Toffees players, as they seek to strengthen their defensive lineup.

On Saturday, December 9, Football Insider disclosed, though, that Everton would not sell Branthwaite during the January transfer window.

Sean Dyche views the 21-year-old Branthwaite as a vital player, and despite Everton’s financial difficulties, they intend to hold onto him for their battle to avoid relegation.

However, after losing favor at Goodison Park, Godfrey is expected to become available from the Merseyside club.

Only two appearances for Everton this season have been made by the 25-year-old; he started the full 90 minutes of their EFL Cup match against Doncaster Rovers and entered as a late substitute in their 2-2 draw with Sheffield United.

This season, Dyche has favored to start Godfrey and Michael Keane as his central defensive tandem, with Branthwaite and Tarkoswki jostling for third place.

Godfrey paid £20 million to join Everton in 2020, but the Merseyside team is prepared to absorb a loss to free up the English defender’s salary.
