Report: Tottenham could announce signing of De Bruyne 2.0 in the next few hours; Paratici has beaten Arsenal to it
Tottenham Hotspur are close to sealing a transfer deal to bring Juventus attacking midfielder, Dejan Kulusevski, to the club.
Reports had emerged from The Athletic this afternoon suggesting Kulusevski was in talks with Spurs over a move to the Premier League. This came on the same day that reports from Italy suggested the Swedish star was still firmly in the sights of Arsenal.
However, a report this evening from La Repubblica has claimed that it is indeed Tottenham who have won the race and that Kulusevski could even leave Turin in the next few hours. If that is the case, then it will the first major signing of the window for Tottenham, who have suffered a handful of disappointments this month already.
Kulusevski, who has been compared to Manchester City ace Kevin De Bruyne in the past, is seemingly making way due to Juventus splashing out of Dusan Vlahovic in the last 24 hours.
The Swedish star was signed for big money by Juve but hasn’t quite hit the heights some thought he might in Turin. But there is a strong belief within the Spurs camp – especially from Fabio Paratici – that Kulusevski can fulfil his potential under Antonio Conte.
TBR’s View: Kulusevski Better Than Nothing For Tottenham
Well, it’s a signing at least for Tottenham. It might not be Traore or Diaz, but it’s a wide player with attacking threat who should improve the starting XI.
Kulusevski is a young player with a lot of potential. Indeed, if Conte can work his magic this could be a shrewd move by the club.
This is a huge few days for Tottenham. Paratici needs to satisfy both Conte and the supporters. Landing Kulusevski is a way forward, but there is more to be done. Put simply, Tottenham need more signings and they need them this weekend.
