Tottenham Hotspur learn price tag for Juventus attacker Dejan Kulusevski amidst Arsenal competition
According to Italian news outlet La Repubblica (h/t ESPN), Tottenham Hotspur have learned the transfer price for Juventus star Dejan Kulusevski amidst interest from Arsenal. He has become a peripheral figure at Turin after falling out of favour with Massimiliano Allegri.
Kulusevski has featured in 19 matches this season and has scored a goal alongside two assists. However, he has played just 687 minutes showing how he has been regularly used as a substitute. As a result, it is understandable if the youngster seeks more playing time elsewhere.
Spurs will have to deal with their North London rivals as the latter have been progressing steadily with their interest. Fabio Paratici and Daniel Levy would need to act accordingly if they don’t want to get left behind by others.
The Swedish winger has a valuation of around €40million which isn’t too bad for a talented and young forward who can take up multiple positions in the forward line.
Should pursue or not?
Ultimately, it depends on what Conte, Levy, and Paratici want in the coming transfer windows. However, looking at our current options, fans wouldn’t be wrong to think that the club should sign a player like the Sweden international.
The 21-year-old could play in several positions, which is always a bonus alongside the quality that he brings in. He could play in the wing-back role similar to what Ivan Perisic did under Conte at Inter Milan. It would also increase our depth with his versatility to cover multiple areas in a formation.

With Bryan Gil yet to make a mark since his move and Steven Bergwijn linked with a move to Ajax, it opens the spot for a future target to take the vacant place. The Swede could be that man but for that, we need to beat the Gunners to his signature.
Time will tell whether we will have a chance to get him in January as the 2022 Qatar World Cup gets closer by the day. Regular playing time at a club is important for a footballer if he wants to make the cut for his national team and it remains to be seen if this could be a potential factor in any possible negotiations going forward.
