Arsenal and Tottenham 'hold talks' as Chelsea ‘accelerate’ pursuit

Tottenham could receive a major boost for their January transfer plans if Manchester United decide to allow Jadon Sancho to leave the club on loan.

Juventus have reportedly joined the race to sign the winger, which in turn could push Samuel Iling-Junior further out of the exit from the Allianz Stadium.

Tottenham are among those linked with the Iling-Junior, and their pursuit of the Chelsea academy product could be boosted by United significantly. According to Calcio Mercato, Juve are desperate to acquire the services of Sancho in January and are pushing to strike a loan deal for the England international.

Although the Red Devils want the ex-Borussia Dortmund star to leave permanently, Juve are growing in confidence that Erik ten Hag’s side will ‘give in’ on their stance and allow Sancho to leave on a short-term deal. If an agreement is reached, Iling-Junior could see his exit greenlighted sooner rather than later as Sancho’s arrival will force him further down the pecking order under Massimiliano Allegri, and Spurs can pounce.
