Dejan Kulusevski has revealed he wants to stay at Tottenham and believes the club has ‘no ceiling’ when it comes to playing under Antonio Conte.
The 22-year-old joined Spurs in the January transfer window and has quickly made an impression in North London with a number of promising displays alongside Harry Kane and Heung-min Son.
His impact has seen him notch five goals and eight assists in 18 Premier League appearances (Transfermarkt), while he signed off his campaign in fine fashion with a double in Tottenham’s 5-0 rout of Norwich.
With Champions League football to look forward to, Fabrizio Romano recently revealed that Spurs are planning to keep Kulusevski on loan again next term but still intend on signing him on a permanent deal in the near future.
And Kulusevski himself hopes that is the case as he has expressed his desire to remain in N17 for the long haul and is looking forward to improving under the guidance of Conte.
He told Tottenham’s official website: “I really love staying here.
“It’s been going good, I’ve been feeling really good in the pitch and I enjoy my football a lot but I will rest now for some days and then I want to come back much, much better next year, because I think this team can go much better and we have a fantastic coach.
“I’m looking forward to the future with this club.
“Summer is when you can work. You have time to work and get better and we’re going to put in the work, that’s for sure. We have a very good team and a very good coach, very good players.
“I think we can improve as a team, as we did these last games of the season. I think the last 15 games, we did really good, we played a lot and scored a lot. There’s no ceiling for us now.”
The Evening Standard claim Tottenham hold an option to sign Kulusevski permanently for around £25 million on top of the £8.3 million fee paid to Juventus upon agreeing the loan deal.
Meanwhile, a higher £29 million obligation clause will be triggered if Spurs qualify for the Champions League again next season and he plays in half of the club’s fixtures.

Kulusevski has seriously impressed at Tottenham so far so it isn’t surprising that he is happy and wants to stay at the club. He is still so young and has a lot of room to improve, which is an exciting prospect given Conte is at the helm too.
