CalcioMercato report that Tottenham Hotspur have contacted Juventus over the signing of Dejan Kulusevski in recent days.

Kulusevski has struggled for game time under Massimiliano Allegri this season and it has been reported over recent months that Fabio Paratici wants to reunite with the winger at Spurs.

Spurs are alleged to be facing competition from their North London rivals Arsenal for the Sweden international.

CalcioMercato have now revealed that both Spurs and Arsenal have made contact with Juve regarding Kulusevski recently. However, the report adds that neither club has begun ‘real negotiations’ for the wide man so far.

It is explained that Kulusevski wants to leave the Allianz Stadium in search of regular game time.

Sevilla are also thought to have enquired about signing the Swede but it is stated that the La Liga club want to do a loan deal.

However, Juve are said to have no intention of loaning Kulusevski out, with the Serie A giants demanding €35m (£29.2m) for the player.

Spurs Web Opinion

It is difficult to tell how serious Tottenham’s interest in Kulusevski is. The speculation could just be based on the Parartici connection rather than anything concrete. I am not convinced the Swede fits the profile of players we need in January.
