The Italian starlet has emerged as one of Serie A’s finest young players this term during his current loan spell with Sassuolo, with a four-goal performance against AC Milan having announced his talents to a European audience highlight.
A number of the continent’s elite sides are tracking the 19-year-old, but Spurs are hopeful that they can convince Juve to sell to them before the end of the month.
Despite him being relatively new to senior first-team action at the highest level, the Old Lady value their man at around £15m.
However, Tottenham could attempt to reduce the cash sum needed by involving unwanted midfielder Etienne Capoue – whom they only signed over the summer – in any deal.
Tim Sherwood is sad to be desperate to add to his inherited squad before next week’s deadline, with securing a forward seen as a priority with Jermain Defoe set to leave in the coming months.
