Tottenham Hotspur linked with Dejan Kulusevski transfer

Despite sitting in a respectable seventh place in the Premier League table with 25 from 14 matches, Tottenham Hotspur have only managed to score 16 goals in those games, so it would be no surprise to see the Lilywhites dip into the transfer market for attacking reinforcements.

Star striker Harry Kane has only managed to score one goal in 13 appearances so far this term after racking up an impressive 23 goals last season, lending credence to the belief that another goalscorer is a necessity.

With this in mind, it seems as though Spurs manager Antonio Conte has an eye on signing a player from one of his old clubs who could make the north London club a bit more dangerous going forward.

What’s the news?

According to Italian media outlet Leggo (via Sport Witness), Tottenham have joined the race alongside their north London rivals Arsenal for the signing of Juventus winger Dejan Kulusevski in January.

Can you remember these Spurs kits? We'll start with an easy one, which season is this famous strip from?

Kulusevski signed to Juventus back in the 2020 January transfer window from fellow Italian club Atalanta, shortly before joining Parma on a loan deal until the end of the 2019/20 season.

Overall, the 21-year-old, who is currently valued at £31.5m according to Transfermarkt, has made 66 appearances for Juventus across all competitions, scoring eight and providing nine assists in the process, a decent record considering his age.

Despite making 19 appearances across all competitions so far this season however, Kulusevski has only started four times, showing that he isn’t a crucial figure for the Old Lady and why they could be tempted to sell him in January.

This could therefore give Spurs the opportunity to sign the winger, who has been likened in the past to Arjen Robben because of his ball control and finishing.

With Kulusevski’s young age and the fact that he has played in a number of positions across the midfield and attack throughout his career so far, this could make him a very useful player for Conte given his versatility and knack for scoring goals in those different positions, potentially solving Tottenham’s goalscoring issues.

Labelled by former Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo as a “champion” in terms of his mentality, Conte would surely blow a lot of Spurs fans away if he was able to make Kulusevski one of his first signings as Tottenham manager in January, especially if they manage to beat Arsenal to his signature.
