Report: Tottenham to attempt to recruit Paratici-signed ace labelled ‘a great talent’ by Ronaldo
Tottenham will reportedly attempt to sign Juventus attacker Dejan Kulusevski once Fabio Paratici joins the club.
According to CalcioMercato, the Italian sporting director is a huge fan of the Swedish international. The majority of Juventus’ transfer budget last summer was spent on the former Parma winger.
A shining light in a season to forget

The Stockholm-born forward has even earned praise from Juventus teammate Cristiano Ronaldo. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner labelled Kulusevski ‘a great talent’ via JuveFC following Portugal’s 2-0 win over Sweden in September.
In total, Kulusevski made 47 appearances for Juventus last season, scoring seven goals and assisting a further seven in all competitions.
Paratici can make huge statement with Tottenham Kulusevski signing
The impending arrival of Paratici is being highly anticipated by Tottenham supporters, and the Italian can make a huge statement by recruiting Kulusevski in his first window with the north London club.
As per Gazzetta dello Sport, Paratici is also keen on recruiting Adrien Rabiot to Tottenham this summer. However, there is no question that Kulusevski would be not only the more exciting signing. It is also a deal that will significantly improve Spurs.
With Gareth Bale set to stay at Real Madrid next season, the north London side could do with some firepower in the attack as well as creative quality. And in Kulusevski, they will be getting both in a player who is only 21-years-old.
Ronaldo is a fan of the youngster, and after an impressive debut season with Juventus, Kulusevski could be ready for a move to the Premier League with Paratici seemingly eager to sign the Swedish international this summer once he moves to Tottenham.
