Sevilla enter the race to sign Dejan Kulusevski amidst Tottenham Hotspur interest

According to the Italian publication Calciomercato (h/t ESPN), Sevilla have entered the transfer race to sign Juventus winger Dejan Kulusevski amidst interest from Tottenham Hotspur. The Swede has fallen down the pecking order and has been deemed dispensable by Juventus.

The Bianconeri are keen on selling Kulusevski permanently for €35million in the January transfer window. However, they are finding it difficult to find clubs that would be interested in meeting the asking price. Sevilla are enjoying a good season and could do with the right reinforcements as they chase the La Liga title.

The Spanish side has not been put off by the asking price are currently evaluating it. Arsenal have also shown an interest in signing the 21-year-old but, they have not held any solid negotiations over a future transfer. Tottenham too are yet to play their hand and it remains to be seen how the situation develops.

Spurs be wary!

The La Liga side would add more competition in our pursuit of signing the Swede in the future. We would need to be alerted on this matter if we are actively looking to add him to our frontline. We could use his services looking at our lack of options in the attacking lineup.

As the news mentions above, the valuation is expensive, considering how the Serie A star has failed to live up to the promise he had shown at his previous clubs. As such, it is understandable why no clubs have come forward to meet the asking price.

Julen Lopetegui’s side are still assessing the options meaning they could decide to do so in the coming days. For that reason, we could be forced to take a quick decision shortly not to lose the Swedish international to the competition. Fabio Paratici has to take a stance after consulting with Antonio Conte to make a move for the winger.

Kulusevski is a transfer target for Tottenham, Arsenal and Sevilla.

We have not held any progressive talks so far, and the valuation paints the picture of why that is the case. However, we could try and negotiate a lower fee as Paratici and Conte previously had affiliations with the Turin based club.

We need to make the right additions this month as Bryan Gil and Steven Bergwijn are our only backup options in attack. Gil has not yet fully adapted to the Premier League whereas, Bergwijn is currently out injured, further limiting Conte’s options.

We cannot let this issue sit idly by as it would hamper our chances of a top-four finish this season. Whether Kulusevski is the man to take us to the next level remains to be seen.
