Report: Tottenham has reached a verbal agreement for Juventus winger Dejan Kulusevski

By Eddie Razo -

Tottenham Hotspur appears to be adding a player to their forward group and a name they’ve been linked to for quite some time. According to transfer window specialist Gianluca Di Marzio, Tottenham is closing on a deal for Dejan Kulusevski. 

Di Marzio states that there’s a verbal agreement in place with Juventus. It will include a loan plus buy clause that becomes mandatory in case of a UEFA Champions League qualification or a certain number of appearances that Kulusevski reaches.

Should Tottenham qualify for the Champions League or Kulusevski hit a specific number of appearances to trigger the obligation clause, Spurs would have to pay €35-million with add ons on top of the €5-million loan fee. 

Furthermore, transfer window journalist Fabrizio Romano adds that Kulusevski will sign a five-year contract with the north London club if the obligation clause is triggered. 

This season, Kulusevski has made 27 appearances scoring two goals and registering three assists for Juventus. The 21-year-old hopes that a more significant role in Tottenham can see his production.

Well, I hope you guys are right. I’m not too excited about this signing, but let’s hope for the best.

At least if the guy can play regularly, he’ll already be a vast improvement on Ndom and No Show.

I already saw a picture of that! (unless it was photoshopped lol)

Fabrizio Romano has already done the obligatory “Here we go!” post, thats as good as a legally binding contract I thought!

Critical of not signing Diaz, but then agree if you were a top class player you wouldn’t sign for spurs.

Kind of arguing both sides of the coin there!

Come on Billy, you can’t seriously be blaming Levy and Paratici for missing Luiz. The player couldn’t have signed on the dotted line for Liverpool any quicker if he tried.

A young lad with plenty of top flight experience and international caps who has potential to come in and be an immediate upgrade on Lo Celso and Dele.

Moan all you like about missing out on Traore and Diaz, but both this deals failed because bigger clubs came in for the player.

Like it or not we can only sign players who dont get a better offer from established CL teams. This lad is big and strong and versatile and has way more potential than another N’Nobody from the French league.

I think he’s the best we can get given the circumstances.

Sure, but we really should be aiming for players that could noticeably improve our squad. I honestly don’t think Bentacur is better than what we have.

Yawnnn!
Wake me up when and if we actually see ANYONE arrive who is even half decent and not someone who barely shaves or is near his pension.
Never had any time for ENIC since they sacked GG and brought in Hoddle who was a great player but a lousy manager. The last 20 years have simply proven it beyond doubt repeatedly. No doubt Diaz will tear up our “fullbacks”, just like the other 100s of never-weres whom ENIC would never pay for. Seriously, If I were a first-class quality international footballer, I wouldn’t go near Levy et al.

Definition of oxymoron- “verbal agreement with Tottenham.”

I’m down with the Swedish lad. He could grow into a Player yet. Bentacur, on the other hand, from what I’ve seen in Juve, seems like another overpriced bang-average player we’ll have trouble offloading in the future.

Yes he was young player of the year in “Serie A” 2019-20. He’s a well rounded player who can play in a number of positions (Levy’s wet dream), RW, AM and even striker. The defensive side of his game has also improved a lot. I reckon Conte will get the best out of him.

Traore was probably a riskier punt than Kulusevski is. Hopefully, Conte could have taught Traore to pass and shoot accurately, otherwise his main job would have been to draw defenders out of position. Kulusevski is a better passer, shooter and he can make a fine tackle and dribble (though the latter not as well as Traore). Kulusevski could potentially walk into a AM role and cover for RW & LW too

I and others have been criticizing one apparent transfer failure after another. However, if Paratici really does have as many as 5 negotiations ‘on the go’ for each ‘position of need’ then presumably he tries for a range of players… those A* stars he doubts he’ll get but makes a punt for anyway, down to those C rated players who’ll do ‘in a pinch’. Which would mean the media are full of apparent negotiations which never finalize… because that is precisely what is occurring. If we get a couple of A- players and a B+ player over the line… that’d actually be pretty good business for January.

He probably would, but it’s difficult to see this as anything other than a third choice after Traore and Diaz fell through. A third choice that doesn’t play much for Juve.

Says a lot that we’re getting somewhat excited by him.

This lad would strengthen our squad along with his mate Bentancur. No time for lowballing Levy, get it done or face the wrath of Brian Dagul and the Levy out protest!
