Dejan Kulusevski has admitted he does not know if Tottenham Hotspur are going to sign him permanently now that his loan deal with the club is coming to an end.
The Swedish star signed for Tottenham from Juventus on an 18-month loan deal in January and excelled in his first six months in England.
He contributed five goals and eight assists in the second half of last season (Transfermarkt).
Kulusevski’s impact has been far less impressive this year, though that could be said of most players in the Spurs squad.
The winger has added just two goals and a further eight assists to his tally this term (Transfermarkt).
Of course, the team’s poor performances in general have contributed to this drop in form, as have ongoing injury issues for the 23-year-old.
The idea of Kulusevski becoming a permanent fixture in the Spurs squad seemed to be a given until recently, when it was suggested that the North London side may be having second thoughts (CalcioMercatoWeb).
However, TuttoSport claimed last week that the deal was imminent. Now, Kulusevski himself has weighed in on the matter.
Speaking after the win against Leeds United this weekend, Kulusevski had this to say on his future [via the Daily Mail]: “I don’t know honestly… we will see.
“I’m just focused on the pitch, I tried to do as good as I can and now of course it’s time to speak with the club.”
Spurs Web Opinion
I know Kulusevski hasn’t quite been as hot this year, but he’s still got bags of talent and is a player we should not think twice about signing permanently.
He loves it at Spurs, the fans love him, and he is capable of great things once the team as a whole is firing on all cylinders again. We’d be crazy to let him go.
