Here is your Tottenham Hotspur morning digest for Thursday, November 11.

McKennie interest

Tottenham Hotspur head coach Antonio Conte wants to bring Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie to the club in January, according to Italian outlet Gazzetta Dello Sport.

The report claims that the former Inter Milan boss is extremely keen on bringing McKennie to N17, rating him as the next Arturo Vidal, who plied his trade under Conte in Turin for four years.

The American international, who is valued at £22.5million on Transfermarkt, still has three-and-a-half years left on his deal at Juventus and has made 13 appearances so far this season.

Vlahovic boost

Tottenham have been handed a boost in the race to sign Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic, with a number of reports claiming that local-rivals Arsenal are currently not actively pursuing the 21-year-old.

Daily Express journalist Ryan Taylor has reported that Spurs are the only club with a genuine interest in the prolific centre-forward.

Taylor says that Mikel Arteta’s side are not currently in the market for Vlahovic, a claim that is echoed by Goal’s Arsenal correspondent Charles Watts, who took to Twitter to deliver an update on the Gunners alleged pursuit of the Serbian.

Watts said: “Lots of talk about Vlahovic and Arsenal. My understanding of the situation is there have been no negotiations and he is not a target.

“Signing a forward clearly will be high on the agenda next summer, but as it stands he is not one they are looking at.”

The figures include total wages paid to managers while in the job as well as any payout received after being sacked, with the Portuguese coach being relieved of his duties by Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham in the aforementioned period.
