Transfer News: Tottenham Hotspur to pay €35 million to make Dejan Kulusevski loan deal permanent
Spurs will pay a fee of around €35 million to make the move permanent, provided certain clauses of the loan agreements are met.
Kulusevski joined the north London club on loan from Juventus in January earlier this year. His loan deal is set to expire next summer, but it looks like he won’t be returning to Turin.
It is hardly surprising to know that the club is considering such a move. The 22-year-old has been one of the best players for the club since joining them.
The winger played a pivotal part in helping his side secure Champions League football last season. He formed a deadly partnership with Harry Kane up-front scoring five goals and assisting another eight in 18 Premier League games.
A trusted player by Antonio Conte, the Swedish international has continued that good form this season too. The winger has scored one and assisted another three in seven league appearances so far.
Kulusevski picked up an injury during the international break and has currently been sidelined. The 22-year-old did not feature for the club in the games against Arsenal and Eintracht Frankfurt and will miss the game against Brighton & Hove Albion later tonight.
A fan favourite, the Spurs faithful will be happy to know about the deal as he has become a crucial fixture in our starting XI. Bryan Gil has been getting minutes in Kulusevski’s absence, but the winger is yet to impress. Conte will hope that the 22-year-old can return to selection as soon as possible.

The game against the Seagulls provides Richy with another chance to stake a claim on the starting spot in Conte’s team. However, it is unlikely that Kulusevski is cast aside in such a manner, especially given how guilty Conte said he felt after dropping him to the bench for three games in a row this season.
