Tottenham keen on £52m January transfer as Newcastle battle emerges


Juventus star Federico Chiesa is the latest player to be linked with a transfer to Tottenham Hotspur. Spurs have enjoyed a hugely successful start to the 2023/24 campaign, currently sitting top of the Premier League whilst also remaining unbeaten.

But Ange Postecoglou's squad is fairly thin, something that will be exacerbated when club captain Son Heung-min heads to the Asian Cup in the New Year whilst central midfielders Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr will also be at the Africa Cup of Nations. That may result in the north Londoners dipping into the transfer market come January as they push to qualify for next season's UEFA Champions League.

Now, Italian outlet Calciomercato have reported that the Lilywhites are keen on Juventus forward Chiesa, with his future in Turin said to be uncertain. It is claimed that the Italian international could decide to leave the Serie A giants in the New Year, with Newcastle United also interested.

The report goes on to say that the Old Lady values Chiesa at €60million (£52 million). The 26-year-old has enjoyed a stellar start to the 2023/24 campaign, netting four times in eight league outings. spoke to Italian football expert Kaustubh Pandey regarding Chiesa during the summer, when he claimed that the former Fiorentina winger could be available for less than the quoted price. “It looks as if Juve would want around €45 million to €50million for him, as they want to recover as much as they can from what they spent on him," Pandey said.
