According to The Daily Mail, Aston Villa hold an interest in Juventus winger Dejan Kulusevski, who has been linked with a move to Tottenham.

Kulusevski has fallen down the pecking order at Juventus this season and it has been reported over recent months that Fabio Paratici, who was instrumental in bringing the winger to Turin, could look to take him to Spurs in January.

CalcioMercato reported at the start of December that Juve were open to cashing in on the 21-year-old in January, with Spurs alleged to be competing with their North London rivals Arsenal for the Sweden international.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side are thought to be demanding around €35m (£29.6m) for the winger’s services.

The Mail have now explained that Kulusevski is also attracting interest from a third Premier League club in Aston Villa. 

It is explained that Steven Gerrard is keen to add an attacking midfielder and right-winger to his squad this month, and the Juve star is one of the players the Villans have their eye on.

Spurs Web Opinion

A lot of the speculation from the Italian press linking Spurs with Juventus players might just be guesswork based on the Paratici connection.

It is difficult to ascertain which of those links are true, but on the face of it, a player of Kulusevski’s profile could prove useful for Conte, particularly if the Italian does not have too much faith in Bergwijn.
