The Daily Mail have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are expected to trigger the option to sign Dejan Kulusevski permanently at the end of the season.

Kulusevski was not one of the most high profile captures of the January transfer window, given his struggles for game time at Juventus this season.

However, the Swede has hit the ground running in North London and has demonstrated why he was so highly thought of during his time at Parma.

The 21-year-old has scored twice and provided five assists in 10 Premier League appearances so far (Transfermakrt) and has added another dimension to Tottenham’s attack alongside Harry Kane and Son Heung-min.

The Mail state that Spurs paid £8m to sign Kulusevski on loan in January and could trigger an option to buy, which lasts until the summer of 2023.

It is explained that they could sign the Sweden international permanently for £25m at the end of the current season as they would be obliged to pay £30m for him in the summer of 2023 if he plays at least 50 per cent of the matches next season and the club qualify for the Champions League.

The report adds that Spurs are expected to trigger the £25m option for Kulusevski when the transfer window reopens.

The above breakdown of the purchase clause for Kulusevski is different from what Fabrizio Romano explained it to be last month.

He stated that Spurs’ option to buy would become an obligation if the Swede starts 15 Premier League games before the end of the season.

Either way, one would expect the North Londoners to activate the option to buy this summer, given the impact that the 21-year-old has made.
