Dejan Kulusevski has expressed uncertainty about his future following his final games of the season with Tottenham Hotspur against Leeds United.
The 23-year-old winger’s future has been subject to conflicting reports and speculation.
Initially, there were concerns that Spurs might not exercise their option to buy Kulusevski due to their failure to qualify for the Champions League this season.
The loan agreement included a clause that made the transfer obligatory if Tottenham secured a top-four position. However, with their absence from Europe’s premier club competition, Spurs are no longer obligated to purchase him for €35m.
Contradicting these reports, journalist Alasdair Gold dismissed the concerns and stated that the club expects to sign Kulusevski regardless of their failure to finish top 4. He emphasised that the winger is seen as a vital part of Tottenham’s plans for the upcoming season.
However, Kulusevski himself has now admitted that his future at the club is uncertain. After Tottenham’s final game, a convincing 4-1 win over relegated Leeds United, the player acknowledged that he is unsure about what lies ahead.
He told Viaplay (via Fotbolltransfers):
“I honestly don’t know [what will happen], I just focus on doing the best possible on the pitch. Now of course I have to talk to the club and then we’ll see what happens.”
Kulusevski joined Spurs on loan from Juventus in January of last year and made an instant impact, contributing with goals and assists to help the team secure a Champions League spot.
This season has unfortunately been hampered by injuries due to which he struggled to replicate his previous form, but he still managed to finish the season with 2 goals and 7 assists.
It is possible that he might possibly have played his last game for the club. If so, he will be considered one of the best signings the club has made recently given his immediate impact. He scored seven goals and assisted 16 others in 57 appearances in all competitions for Spurs in his one and a half year at the club.
