Fabio Paratici reportedly wants to bring 'high level' attacker to Spurs on the back of 'great season'

Spurs are reportedly looking to bring Fabio Paratici to Tottenham this summer.

And the former Juve director apparently has his eyes set on Dejan Kulusevski.

The Italian is apparently already planning for a busy summer at Tottenham on the transfer front.

According to Calciomercato, Paratici is eyeing a move for Kulusevski as well as for veteran centre-back Leonardo Bonucci.

Who is Dejan Kulusevski?

Kulusevski was born in Stockholm, Sweden on 25 April 2001.

The 21-year-old began his football journey at IF Brommapojkarna before joining Atalanta’s academy in 2016.

Kulusevski made his senior Atalanta debut in 2019, before joining Parma on loan at the beginning of the 2019–20 season.

He signed for Juventus during the 2020 winter transfer window, though he rejoined Parma on loan until the summer.

The winger’s Juve debut came in September 2020, scoring on his first appearance in a Serie A win over Sampdoria.

Kulusevski is also a senior Sweden international, who made his debut in November 2019.

He came on as a substitute in a Euro 2020 qualifying win over the Faroe Islands.

“High level”

Kulusevski joined Juve under Paratici’s watch, and the Italian is a big fan of the player.

“I think Kulusevski is having a great season,” Paratici told Sky Italia last year, via football.london.

“He’s scored a few goals, played at a high level, but don’t forget he is only 20 years old.

“He is also evolving in his role and is capable of taking on different positions in different tactical systems.”

Kulusevski’s maiden playing season at Juve saw him play in a variety of positions.

As per Transfermarkt, he played on both wings, right midfield, as a No. 10, and even as a centre-forward and central midfielder.

Kulusevski grabbed 14 goal contributions from 47 games last season.

It’s not the highest tally, but it’s understandable considering how much he’s been shifted around.

Spurs need more of a goal threat and creativity next season, so Kulusevski would certainly be a good shout.
