According to a report by AS, Tottenham Hotspur and managing director Fabio Paratici have set their sights on Juventus dynamo Dejan Kulusevski to solve one major Nuno Espirito Santo concern.
The Lowdown: Spurs enter Kulusevski race…
As per reports which have come out over the last week, it appears that Tottenham are firmly in the hunt for Kulusevski, who has emerged as a real target for Paratici at N17.
Indeed, another exciting report shared how Spurs and Paratici are even planning an audacious mega money double swoop for both the Sweden international and Juve defender Matthijs de Ligt (Calciomercato).
Another update has now backed Tottenham’s interest in Kulusevski at least as they share how Paratici aims to resolve a major Spurs issue.
The Latest: Paratici formulates plan to solve Kane issue…
As per AS, the Italian transfer chief has set his sights on the €40m (£34.5m) forward, who is now a prime target for the club.
Paratici signed him for Juventus and now wants to bring him to Spurs for one main reason, and that is because star striker Harry Kane is severely out of form and not firing.
After missing out on a move away over the summer, the England captain has failed to replicate last season’s stunning run of form, and AS call it an ‘untenable situation’ for Nuno.
The Verdict: Solid target…
Able to play in a wide array of forward positions including as an out-and-out striker (Transfermarkt), it may take a lot for Kulusevski to solve the Kane conundrum given his inexperience and the fact he has scored more than 10 goals just once in a single season.
However, his potential could be vast and he may end up being a very fruitful long term purchase for Spurs in a similar vein to Bryan Gil or Pape Matar Sarr.
