TOTTENHAM are tracking a couple of Juventus stars but opinions are divided on which one would be the best signing, according to reports in Italy.
Tottenham manager Antonio Conte likes the look of midfielder Weston McKennie but the club's sporting director Fabio Paratici wants forward Dejan Kulusevski, says Juve news website ilbianconero.com.
Both Conte and Paratici are very well versed on the merits of both of the Serie A stars and it remains to be seen whose opinion counts the most on new signings.
Paratici was previously sporting director at Juventus but ended his 11-year stay in Turin to join Tottenham in June 2021.
And Conte, who led Inter Milan to the Serie A title last season, succeeded sacked Nuno Espírito Santo as Spurs boss six months later.
Paratici signed Sweden winger Kulusevski, 21, for Juventus in 2020.
And he 'would not disdain replicating the same operation' again for Spurs, according to ilbianconero.
It says the Italian giants value him at 'close to 35 million euros', which is about £29.5m.

Kulusevski has 'several admirers' in the Premier League, including Arsenal, according to the report.
But it adds: "Less enthusiastic seems to be Antonio Conte, the Tottenham coach who, if he were to draw for Juve, would prefer to bet on Weston McKennie , rather than on Kulusevski."
Kulusevski joined Juve from Atalanta in 2020 but has struggled for regular game time under boss Massimiliano Allegri this season.
Versatile United States star McKennie, 23, joined the Old Lady on loan from FC Schalke 04 in 2020 and made the move permanent last year.
