Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly planning to step up their interest in Juventus winger Samuel Iling-Junior.
Despite their recent four-game winless streak, head coach Ange Postecoglou and the club's supporters will be satisfied with their start to the new Premier League season.
A total of 27 points and 28 goals have been recorded in 14 matches, leaving the North Londoners sitting six points adrift of leaders Arsenal.
However, a lack of depth in the Spurs ranks has recently been exposed due to a number of injuries, including in the final third where James Maddison, Manor Solomon and Richarlison have all spent time on the sidelines.
Spurs were still able to come from behind on two occasions against Manchester City on Sunday evening to secure a morale-boosting 3-3 draw at the Etihad Stadium.
Nevertheless, it has been widely reported that Postecoglou is keen to add another winger to his squad when business reopens at the start of 2024.
According to Italian journalist Daniele Longo, he expects Spurs to follow up their admiration of Iling-Junior by putting together a formal proposal in January.
The 20-year-old has been restricted to 113 minutes spread across four substitute appearances in Serie A this campaign, most recently featuring against Cagliari on November 11.
In total, Iling-Junior has 22 outings in all competitions for Juventus to his name, but just one of his 16 matches in Italy's top flight have come from the starting lineup.
With the England Under-21 international only having a contract until June 2025, Juventus are allegedly willing to part ways for a fee in the region of €18m (£15.4m).
Juventus, who sit just two points adrift of leaders Inter Milan in the Serie A table, are also said to be in a position where they need to generate funds to boost their well-documented financial issues.
Iling-Junior is no stranger to London having been born in Islington and spending nine years of his youth career at Chelsea.
