Taking to Twitter, Italian reporter Niccolo Ceccarini has leaked a possible transfer boost for Tottenham Hotspur as he drops a big update regarding Dejan Kulusevski.
The Lowdown: Conte eyeing move…
Over the last fortnight, links have emerged to the Sweden international amid his continued lack of chances under new boss Massimiliano Allegri in Turin.
The 21-year-old has only started a handful of Serie A matches this season with the majority of his minutes coming off the bench, and this has lead to unrest over his future.
Tuttosport believe (via Sport Witness) that Tottenham are ‘in first place’ for his signing with serious competition expected, but Fabio Paratici and co will need to significantly invest given that Juventus value Kulusevski at around €40m (£33.9m).
The Latest: Spurs gifted Kulusevski transfer boost…
In an update, reporter Ceccarini has made a big claim on Twitter in what comes as a possible boost for Tottenham.
He said that Juventus are now ‘ready to sell’ the player ‘as early as January’, mainly to bolster their own transfer kitty as they prepare a swoop for Fiorentina star Dusan Vlahovic.
The Verdict: Priority target?
While Kulusevski isn’t a priority target for Spurs, he should at the very least come as an outside contender for Paratici and Conte’s shopping list ahead of Janaury, especially considering that they both apparently believe he’s a ‘gem’.
The attacker himself also allegedly wants a ‘change of scenery‘, potentially handing Spurs another boost in their pursuit of the player.
Lauded as ‘explosive‘ by former Sweden striker Marcus Allback and hailed as a ‘great talent’ by none other than former Juventus team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo, the 21-year-old certainly has bags of potential.
The only red herring to this possible move may be his lofty asking price after Tottenham announced an £80.2m pre-tax loss for the most recent financial year.
