Tottenham Hotspur dealt Dejan Kulusevski blow as Juventus change transfer stance

According to the transfer journalist Nicolo Schira (h/t ESPN), Tottenham Hotspur have been dealt a major blow as Juventus have changed their stance on the potential exit of Dejan Kulusevski.

The Swede struggled to get regular game time under Massimiliano Allegri but a turnaround in fortunes could be on the cards. Juventus’s star winger, Federico Chiesa experienced an unfortunate experience over the weekend when he tore his ACL.

The injury effectively rules him out for the rest of the season. Juve were open to letting Kulusevski leave in the January transfer window before this unforeseen setback has seen them change their stance.

Arsenal were also interested in landing the 21-year-old Kulusevski. A move to North London will now have to wait.

What next for Spurs?

Fabio Paratici must find other targets to back Antonio Conte this month since it is imperative that signings are made to boost the attacking areas. To think that we have no natural backup for Harry Kane is baffling enough, and our situation is more or less the same on the wings.

Son Heung-Min is currently out on the sidelines meaning Bryan Gil is the only option on the left-wing. Lucas Moura is the starter on the right side, so Steven Bergwijn would be the one to back him up. But Gil is still learning his ways in the new environment, meaning we cannot count on him just yet.

Paratici must need to uplift the quality and depth of our frontline options if we have ambitions to get into the top four. Kulusevski could have been an ideal target as his versatility would have enabled Conte to use him in different positions.

But we do not have the time to dwell on the issue as the winter transfer window is already underway. We are nearing mid-January, meaning there would not be much time left to make our move to bring in reinforcements.

We have to address these issues as soon as possible, or else there could see a repeat of what had happened in our previous fixture against Morecambe. The lack of options forced the Italian coach to play Dele Alli and Gi upfront. To call it a failure would be generous.

We cannot put the fault on Alli, the Spaniard or the coach for the poor display as it is the hierarchy that has put us in this situation in the first place. Spurs have to start someplace and there is no better time than now for the club to back their manager.

A football enthusiast who is madly in love with the beautiful sport.
