Those ingredients were imported from the USMNT, Netherlands, Albania, and Croatia.

Let’s dig into them. A feast, if you will.

De Vrij to Newcastle, Everton, Tottenham

Stefan de Vrij is the big name of three Serie A players ticketed for Newcastle United as the club’s new ownership attempts to give Eddie Howe improved options at center back and center mid.

De Vrij could be joined by teammate Marcelo Brozovic, according to 90min, though it will be interesting to follow if some of these clubs aren’t offering players to the newly-rich Magpies at a serious premium.

The report says that Juventus is prepared to sell McKennie for between $34-39 million, and that Tottenham director Fabio Paratici and manager Antonio Conte would be happy to meet that price in January.

Juve is surprisingly also mentioned as a possible seller of Dejan Kulusevski, the playmaking Swede plenty electric but not quite hitting his heights early this season.

USMNT man McKennie, 23, moved from Schalke to Juve for under $25 million in 2021 after a successful loan spell. He has two goals in 11 matches this season and has featured regularly for both Max Allegri and Andrea Pirlo.

But it hasn’t been all smooth sailing in Turin and Juve is always tipped to offload assets, the same mindset that fueled the jettison of Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester.

McKennie fills a need for Spurs and is the type of all-action midfielder that Conte can appreciate, and perhaps Tottenham has pieces that Juve would like in a deal. Paratici would know.
