'Very impressed': Jack Wilshere blown away by 24-year-old Fabio Paratici is determined to sign for Tottenham

Jack Wilshere has lavished praise on United States World Cup star Weston McKennie before he faces England tonight.

It has been reported that Tottenham chief Fabio Paratici is a big fan of the American midfielder, who plies his trade for Juventus.

He is determined to bring McKennie to north London, but on the other side of town to the one that Wilshere works on with Arsenal.

For the Sun, ahead of tonight’s game, Wilshere ran the rule over some of the USA players who can trouble England and raved about the 24-year-old.

Wilshere on McKennie

Wilshere said: “I was very impressed with the United States’ Juventus star Weston McKennie in the draw against Wales.

“He was a key man in their midfield and England will have to be on their toes. He’s strong on the ball and also has a few tricks up his sleeve.”

Arsenal are also said to be keen on McKennie too as they go into the January transfer window looking for a new central midfielder.

It seems that both clubs may have other targets who are more of a priority, but a good World Cup could mean McKennie catches their eye that bit more.

The USA came out so fast against Wales, but looked to tire and lose confidence as the game wore on and eventually conceded.

England have to deal with that intensity tonight, being clinical in front of goal and looking to get group qualification sealed at the earliest possible opportunity.
