Chelsea are keeping tabs on Juventus and USA international midfielder Weston McKennie.
According to a Substack column from journalist Simon Phillips (h/t Football.London), the Blues are keeping close tabs on Juventus and USA men’s national team midfielder Weston McKennie.
McKennie arrived at Juventus from Bundesliga side Schalke in the summer of 2020. The 24-year-old has been one of the prominent figures in the team. Despite the team’s lack of form, the midfielder has had a decent campaign so far, which has attracted interest from Chelsea and Manchester United.
McKennie is a central midfielder who can offer his services in both boxes. But, he has played in a double pivot, as a wide midfielder in a 4-4-2 formation and also as a wing-back.
Chelsea could do with fresh and young additions to the midfield department sooner rather than later. Jorginho (30) and N’Golo Kante (31) have their contracts expiring at the end of this season. Kante is injured too and he is out from the World Cup as well. Although there are talks ongoing with the Italian international for a contract extension, he is asking for a pay rise.
