According to Football Insider sources, the deal to make Dejan Kulusevski a permanent Tottenham player is ’99 per cent’ done. 

Kulusevski joined Spurs on loan back in January 2022, and it was reported at the time that there were a series of payments and clauses included in the deal from Juventus (Guardian).

Tottenham reportedly paid £8.3m in January to loan Kulusevski for the rest of the campaign until June 2023, paying his wages in full for the duration of his time in North London.

If by the end of the current season, Kulusevski has played for at least 45 minutes in 50% or more of Tottenham’s Premier League matches and Spurs qualify for the Champions League, a €35m (£30.4m) mandatory buy clause will be triggered.

If not, then Tottenham will still hold a €30m (£26m) option to buy the Swedish winger, which one would expect them to trigger given the immense success he had had in N17 so far.

Footballer Insider claim that the contract terms with Kulusevski and the deal with Juventus is ’99 per cent’ done for Spurs and they will push ahead to sign him even if the clauses are not automatically triggered.

Spurs Web Opinion:

In the current climate, that has to be one of the biggest transfer bargains of the past five years for a big six club, perhaps even beaten by the deal that Spurs managed to pull off for Rodrigo Bentancur! Fabio Paratici is certainly enjoying a productive spell in charge of Tottenham’s recruitment.
