In the second half of last season it was a ‘pot of gold’, but this season is different. With an outright transfer option but still not triggered. Dejan Kulusebski wants to hear Tottenham’s plans.
Kulusebski is a Swedish midfielder born in 2000. He played for Juventus after spells at Atalanta and Parma, scoring four goals and providing three assists in 35 appearances in the Italian Serie A in 2020-21. However, his role diminished somewhat in the first half of last season. He made 20 league appearances but only five starts.
This is why Tottenham have expressed interest in Kulusebski. Antonio Conte, who took over midway through the season, was looking to bolster his squad for a second-half rebound, so he signed Kulusebski on loan in the January transfer window. The deal was for 18 months, with a mandatory buyout clause linked to individual performance and team results.
In the second half of last season, Kulusebski was a liability. Playing alongside Son Heung-min and Harry Kane in the main attacking line, Kuluczewski scored five goals and provided eight assists in 18 English Premier League (EPL) games. His performances helped Tottenham finish fourth in the league and qualify for the UEFA Champions League (UCL) for the first time in three years.
This season, barring injury, he’s been a 메이저사이트 mainstay, and it’s been a similar story. They have Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, and Kuluczewski, who is competing with Xherdan Shaqiri for a starting spot.
It’s time to make a decision on his future. Kuluczewski’s loan deal is up this summer. Initially, it was reported that Tottenham would make an outright purchase. At the end of the month, Kulusebski said, “Conte’s departure will not affect my transfer. I want to stay at Tottenham.”
However, other reports have emerged recently. According to Calcio Mercato, “With Conte and Paratici gone, Tottenham have no incentive to make a full offer for Kuluczewski. They plan to sell him back to Juventus this summer. Tottenham can buy Kulusebski outright for €35 million if they fulfill certain conditions regarding playing time this season.”
“I love Tottenham, but I want to know what they think, what the future holds, I will talk to them, I want to hear what their plans are,” Kulusebski said.
