Tottenham: Dejan Kulusevski undergoes medical scan

Tottenham: Dejan Kulusevski undergoes medical scan -Premier League News

Tottenham Hotspur forward Dejan Kulusevski is an injury ‘doubt’ for the Premier League clash vs Arsenal on Saturday, according to journalist Dan Kilpatrick.

The Lowdown: Injury latest

The 22-year-old has been away representing Sweden on international duty for the past fortnight having featured in both of his country’s Nations League fixtures against Serbia and Slovenia.

However, there was cause for concern upon his return to the capital after complaining of tightness in his hamstring, with Antonio Conte remaining very tight-lipped when asked about the situation during his pre-match press conference on Thursday.

The Latest: Kulusevski fitness update

Taking to Twitter, Kilpatrick revealed that Kulusevski will need to be assessed ahead of this weekend’s game after undergoing a medical scan. He wrote:

“Dejan Kulusevski had a scan yesterday after returning from internationals with a suspected muscle problem, and now thought to be a derby doubt.”

The Verdict: Blow for Conte

Whilst Conte has Richarlison available to play alongside Harry Kane and Son-Heung Min as a replacement, Kulusevski potentially missing out will come as a huge blow to the Spurs boss.

The ‘phenomenon’, as dubbed by football talent scout Jacek Kulig, has made an instant impact since his arrival in January, providing 11 assists and scoring six goals in just 29 appearances (Transfermarkt).

You’d expect that Kulusevski may not be risked for the north London derby given how recently the injury has taken place and Spurs’ busy schedule, though the Italian will be hoping that his star isn’t facing too long on the sidelines so that he’s back at his disposal as soon as possible.
