• Tottenham's Dele Alli is expected to leave after a tumultous season with Jose Mourinho
  • Juventus loanee Weston McKennie emerges as a possible replacement
  • RB Leipzig's Marcel Sabitzer is also on Tottenham's radar

Keen on parting ways with Dele Alli, Tottenham is considering a move for one of Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus co-stars.

It has been a rough season for Alli at Tottenham after being put on the spot by Jose Mourinho following an upsetting play against Stoke last week.

The fractious relationship between the pair has reflected on the pitch as the English midfielder star has only made four English Premier League appearances this season.

With Alli’s looming Tottenham exit, Mourinho’s side is now in search of a suitable replacement. It is believed that there will be an array of midfielders who would be available in the market in the new year, but Tottenham has got its sights locked on Juventus loanee Weston McKennie, per Italian outlet Calciomercato.

After an impressive showing for the reigning Serie A champs, McKennie has emerged as a target for several Premier League clubs, including Manchester United and Chelsea.

However, the Spurs remain the frontrunners to land the American midfield star, the report added.

During McKennie’s loan move to Juventus in August, the Old Lady reportedly paid Schalke €4.5 million ($5.5 million). However, Juve would have to pay another €18.5 million ($22.7 million), plus bonuses, if they want to make the 22-year-old a regular in the club.

McKennie has already won 21 caps for the USA national team. He is considered a rising star, having scored twice in 15 appearances for Juventus this season.

Thus far, McKennie’s most notable goal was the stunning overhead kick in Juve’s 3-0 thrashing of Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League earlier this month.

Aside from McKennie, Tottenham is also plotting a swoop for RB Leipzig’s Marcel Sabitzer.

Evening Standard reported that Sabitzer is also a “leading target” of the Spurs to fill the void that Alli is about to leave.

During the aftermath of Alli’s poor showing against Stoke, former Crystal Palace striker Clinton Morrison has concluded that the “talented” player might really have to find another team

"Dele Alli is a talented boy but I think there comes a time where a player needs a change,” Morrison said on BBC Radio 5 Live. "He tries a flick and Jose Mourinho goes out to the touchline and says 'your flick has cost us that goal.' There's going to be more to that. Jose is not happy.”

"He's a confidence player and he needs a manager to love him and I don't think Jose Mourinho is loving him at the moment,” he added.
