Tottenham director of football, Fabio Paratici could make a move to reunite with Juventus forward Dejan Kulusevski in January, according to the Mirror. 

The Spurs chief is very familiar with the 21-year-old, having originally acquired him for the Turin side last year during his stint with Juventus. 

The Mirror report that Spurs are keeping tabs on the forward and could look to shape up a move in the next transfer window.

The report adds Nuno Espirito Santo’s side recently sent scouts out to watch Kulusevski in Champions League action against Malmo this month. 

However, they would return disappointed, having been able to watch him participate for just seven minutes as Juventus cruised to a 3-0 victory. 

The Sweden international registered 47 appearances in all competitions for the Old Lady last season, scoring and assisting seven goals 

But this term, he has struggled to nail down a starting spot under Massimiliano Allegri, having started just one Serie A game and been forced to make a handful of appearances from the bench.

Kulusevski could be an interesting option for Spurs should they look to pursue a future deal. However, transfers in January can be notoriously difficult with the season would be deep into proceedings, which could make clubs potentially unwilling to part with their assets.
