Tottenham Hotspur forward Dejan Kulusevski potentially injured in pre-season
Dejan Kulusevski walked off the pitch as Tottenham Hotspur players were training during a pre-season session in South Korea. As per Alasdair Gold from football.london, the Swedish winger could be seen walking off the pitch with what could be an injury.
While there is no indication of it being anything serious, the 22-year-old did point to the back of his leg as he was leaving. It remains to be seen whether Kulusevski features in the game against Team K League.
The Swedish international arrived in North London in January and has made an emphatic start to his Spurs career. In 20 appearances for the club, the 22-year-old has scored five goals and assisted eight more.

Tottenham snapped at the chance of signing Kulusevski along with Rodrigo Bentancur from Juventus on January deadline day. The two signings have made a difference in Antonio Conte’s side and helped the team to a top-four finish.
The Swedish youngster especially made a difference in the attack. The gaffer preferred the 22-year-old over other options like Lucas Moura and Steven Bergwijn.
Spurs have strengthened further this summer transfer window as the forward line has seen the arrivals of Ivan Perisic and Richarlison. Given the other options already at Conte’s disposal, the North London club are stacked with attackers.
Harry Kane will once again lead the attack for us next season. Son Heung-min is fresh off winning the Premier League Golden Boot. Kulusevski formed a brilliant trio with the two last season.
With so many options, there is going to be competition to get into Conte’s XI. So naturally, players will want to avoid injuries and play as many minutes as they get.
