“I told him…”: Tottenham star reveals how he convinced January signing to join the club

By Saikat -

Tottenham Hotspur signed Lucas Bergvall from Djurgarden during the January transfer window.

The 18-year-old midfielder is regarded as one of the finest young talents in European football and he was a target for Spanish club Barcelona as well. However, Tottenham convinced him to move to the Premier League and snub the opportunity to join the La Liga outfit.

Tottenham winger Dejan Kulusevski played a key role in convincing the 18-year-old midfielder to move to England. The winger has now revealed what he said to his compatriot.

“I told him the truth. How much I enjoyed Tottenham as a club and London as a city, how good the coach was and how good my teammates were. That was enough, it seems,” said Dejan Kulusevski (h/t Aftonbladet).

Bergvall was loaned back to Djurgarden in January and he will join up with his new club in the summer. He is expected to be a first team player for Spurs next season.

The 18 year old is a technically gifted central midfielder who will add creativity, control and flair to the Spurs midfield. He has the attributes to develop a top class Premier League midfielder with the right guidance.

It will be interesting to see if Ange Postecoglou can help the youngster improve and fulfil his potential at the north London club.

Tottenham have put together an exciting squad and they are pushing for Champions League qualification. They will look to build a formidable side in the coming months and compete for major trophies. They cannot hope to compete with the biggest clubs in the world financially and therefore they must look to improve the team sustainably. Signing talented young players for reasonable prices and nurturing them into established stars is the right way forward.

Bergvall will look to make his mark in English football next year and hit the ground running. It remains to be seen whether he can establish himself as an important player for Tottenham.
