The 21-year-old doesn’t seem to be in Massimiliano Allegri’s plans and Juve are reportedly willing to sell him.

However, the Gunners appear to have competition for the £30million-rated Sweden international’s services.

Arsenal are up against Tottenham, who have also got in contact with Kulusevski’s agent, claims Calciomercato.

If the reports are true, it’ll be a tough battle against Spurs, who have two ex-Juve men on their books in Fabio Paratici and Antonio Conte.

Nonetheless, Arsenal fans should be buzzing over speculation linking them with Kulusevski, because he’s a superb player.

Arsenal target Kulusevski – the story so far

Kulusevski has been at Juve since 2020, when he joined from Atalanta in a reported £31.5million deal.

Born in Sweden, the 21-year-old’s career began at IF Brommapojkarna before joining Atalanta’s academy in 2016.

Kulusevski is a versatile player who’s apt in central midfield, at No. 10 and on the wing.

His key traits include technique, physicality and unselfishness on the pitch.

Kulusevski has the Cristiano Ronaldo seal of approval, the Portugal legend calling him “excellent” in 2020.

And he has earned comparisons with some top players, including Kevin De Bruyne.
