As per Calciomercato, Tottenham may now have been handed a boost in the race to sign Juventus attacker Dejan Kulusevksi.
The Lowdown: Spurs enter contention…
As per recent updates, Spurs have joined the fight to bag Kulusevski amid his unrest in Turin, with a report from TUTTOmercatoWEB claiming new boss Antonio Conte sees him as a ‘gem’ with great potential.
Fabio Paratici apparently shares this ‘esteem’ for the 21-year-old according to TMW, so much so that journalist Daniele Longo followed up their report with another enticing claim.
The Latest: Conte handed Kulusevski boost?
According to the Italian outlet’s information, as Spurs and Conte chase his signature, Juve may now allow Kulusevski to go out on loan in January.
Coming as potentially good news for Spurs, it seems they could bypass a transfer fee entirely and boost Conte’s options going forward over the second half of 2021/2022 at least.
In another boost, Calciomercato believe he ‘wants a change of scenery’ and the Premier League is his most likely destination.
The Verdict: Get it done?
Signing him on loan to see how he would fare under Conte in England could be a move worth pursuing, especially taking into account just how highly he is rated by the Italian according to reports.
Given his status as an ‘advanced playmaker‘ as well as being able to play out wide according to Football Talent Scout, could Spurs finally sign a player to replicate the long-missed influence of Christian Eriksen?
According to WhoScored, over his most impressive Serie A campaign for Parma in 2019/2020, Kulusevski managed a noteworthy 2.2 key passes and 2.1 completed dribbles per 90 in the final third.
Lauded as ‘explosive‘ by former Sweden striker Marcus Allback, Kulusevski could be the unexpected answer to Spurs’ prayers.
