McKennie appeared to be looking in the direction of sports reporter Diletta Leotta, who hosts Serie A games on broadcaster DAZN.
She was presenting from near the Juventus bench ahead of the 1-1 draw against Verona on Saturday night, The Sun reports.
And social media users couldn’t help but notice his face as cameras panned towards him.
The 29-year-old reporter Diletta has hosted Serie A on DAZN since the 2018-19 season and has over seven million Instagram followers.
McKennie has not publicly acknowledged the world’s giggling at his wondering eyes and has not taken to social media to deny it, despite the frenzy of jokes.
The glamorous broadcaster hinted she may have found love after posting a picture of a large bouquet of flowers last month.
And Italian magazine Chi revealed the lucky man is actor Can Yaman – 2019’s GQ Men of the Year Best Rising Actor.
Yaman, 31, and Leotta, 29, were snapped by paparazzi in Rome and are understood to have enjoyed a romantic break together in the Italian capital where the Turkish film star was filming.
American star McKennie, meanwhile, is making a name for himself after leaving Texas and moving to Schalke four years ago.
He is currently on loan at Juventus for the season with an option to make the deal permanent.
