Tottenham Hotspur have completed the signing of Dejan Kulusevski on an initial loan deal, Juventus have confirmed.

The 21-year-old moves to north London on loan until the 30th of June 2023 which will see Spurs pay a €10 million (£8.3million) fee.  €3 million (£2.5 million) of which is for the current season, and a further €7 million (£5.8milion) for the next campaign.

Spurs also have the option to make the deal permanent for €35 million (£29.2million), which is payable in five year period.

Fabio Paratici, Tottenham’s managing director of football, oversaw the £37m signing of Kulusevski from Atalanta in January 2020 during his time at Juventus (Sky Sports).

The Swedish international has made 27 appearances for Juventus in all competitions this season, but has started only seven of those and has scored just twice (transfermarkt).

Kulusevski was under contract until 2025 at the Allianz Stadium but has failed to nail down a regular place in the Bianconeri lineup during the current campaign.
