Tottenham Hotspur appear to have lost a prospect

Tottenham Hotspur appear to have lost out on a young Serie A attacking prospect they were chasing. Aston Villa are set to make a move for Juventus’ 21-year-old Samuel Ealing-Junior.

‘Tottenham’s target for a special talent has gone to Aston Villa,’ British outlet TBRFootball reported on Wednesday (ET), citing a social media post by European transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano. Spurs had been pursuing Juventus’ Samuel Ealing-Junior, who was considered one of the most talented players in his age group. As recently as May, it was reported that Tottenham were close to signing him. At the time, GivmeSports reported that ‘Spurs could sign Ealing-Junior for £13 million if they offer enough’.

However, the player’s destination has taken a sharp turn toward Aston Villa in recent days. This is because the interests of Aston Villa and Juventus are aligned. ‘Aston Villa have agreed to send Douglas Luiz to Juventus in exchange for Ealing-Junior, 스포츠토토 Weston McKennie and €20 million,’ Romano said on his social media account, adding: ‘The two clubs are close to a final agreement. The personal terms of the players involved are currently being discussed.

Ealing-Junior has been compared to Bayern Munich star Alfonso Davies in the Bundesliga.

He has been described as ‘one of the most promising players of his generation’ in terms of skill, speed and agility. With so much talent at such a young age and the ability to play multiple positions, Tottenham had planned to develop Ealing-Junior into their next key player.

However, Aston Villa came along and crushed Spurs’ hopes. Aston Villa are also in a desperate situation. After finishing fourth in the EPL in the 2023-2024 season, Aston Villa qualified for the UEFA Champions League. But to do so, they’ll need to meet Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules. To do so, they need to sell their key midfielder, Luiz, by the end of June.

For Juventus, it’s a good thing that the Brazilian international midfielder is available for sale. If they can get rid of Luiz, they’re willing to pay a certain amount for Ealing-Junior and McKennie. 토토사이트 순위 Juventus would want to come down to around €18 million, which Aston Villa would likely accept. Tottenham are the only ones left out.
