Premier League side Bournemouth are set to make their first offer for Juventus’ Weston McKennie, after already having initiated contact for the American.
Reports recently had stated that Bournemouth are interested in the midfielder, with the Bianconeri looking at €40 million to sell the ex-Schalke man.
Daniele Longo has now reported about McKennie, saying that it is indeed Juve’s plan in January to sell McKennie for €35 million to €40 million. Borussia Dortmund are also interested in him, but Bournemouth have now initiated first contract with Juve regarding their move.
It is stated that Max Allegri is a fan of Adrien Rabiot and he wants to keep the Frenchman at the club this month, with the Italian rather prefering a sacrifice of McKennie. Bournemouth is only the first team to make concrete steps and they will make an offer in the next few days.
It is unknown whether the midfielder will open up to the idea of playing for Bournemouth, who are currently 15th in the Premier League. If McKennie moves on to Bournemouth, Juve would be able to sign Ivan Fresneda from Real Valladolid this month.
