Kulusevski to join Tottenham on permanent basis

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte has confirmed his plan to sign Dejan Kulusevski on a permanent basis in the January transfer window. The Swedish international has performed admirably since his arrival at White Hart Lane, and Spurs are expected to pay around 35 million euros to secure his signing from Italian club Juventus.

The Turin side had allowed Dejan Kulusevski to depart on a loan deal for 2 years, and the Swede has caught the eye with a number of impressive displays from attacking midfield. Indeed, at times Kulusevski has outperformed fellow attacker Son Heung-Min.

"He's hungry for more and wants to become a top player. It will be a very smart signing for Tottenham", Conte told Sky Sports

The midfielder has attracted some interest from Spain, too, with Real Madrid amongst the clubs credited with a potential move.

The 22-year-old began his career playing for IF Brommapojkarna before making the move to Italy with Atalanta in 2016. A transfer to Juventus followed a few years later.

The player has 27 caps and 2 goals for his country.
