According to a report in Italian publication Tuttosport, Tottenham are among the long list of clubs interested in signing Parma wonderkid Dejan Kulusevski.

Kulusevski, a technically gifted attacking midfielder who can also play wide, left Atalanta in the summer to join Parma on a season-long loan deal.

His performances for Parma have reportedly caught the eye of several European giants including Spurs. He has three goals and five assists to his name so far this season (TBR Football).

Despite being just 19 years of age, he has already earned a full cap for Sweden and many more are likely to follow if he keeps his form up.

The report in Tuttosport claims that Manchester United are also tracking Kulusevski and could go head to head with Spurs for his signature, while Italian giants Juventus and Inter Milan are also said to be impressed by the young Swede.

The midfielder, who has a contract with Atlanta until 2023, is reportedly valued at £38.5million.

Spurs Web Opinion

With Christian Eriksen’s departure looking imminent, Tottenham could be in the market for an attacking midfielder of Kulusevski’s profile. However, Jose Mourinho doesn’t have a great track record of developing young players and prefers buying proven talent. So the club might have to temporarily shelve their habit of investing in promising youngsters.
