Tottenham confirm Dejan Kulusevski as their first signing this summer

Tottenham Hotspur have officially announced the signing of Dejan Kulusevski, marking their first acquisition of the summer under the guidance of manager Ange Postecoglou.

Kulusevski, who joined Spurs in the January transfer window in 2022, made an immediate impact upon his arrival at the club. His contributions were pivotal in helping Tottenham secure the final Champions League spot, narrowly edging out their arch-rivals Arsenal on the last day of the 2021/2022 league campaign.

However, the talented winger struggled to replicate his previous form in the following season, which could be partly attributed to the unfortunate string of injuries he endured throughout the year.

Despite the setbacks, Dejan Kulusevski managed to make valuable contributions to the team, notching two goals and providing seven assists over the course of the season. While these figures may not have reached the heights of his earlier performances, they are undoubtedly commendable considering the challenges he faced.

The rumours surrounding Kulusevski’s future have been swirling in recent weeks, with conflicting reports creating uncertainty. Nevertheless, Spurs have now definitively confirmed that they have secured the services of the former Juventus player on a permanent basis.

Expressing his excitement upon returning to Tottenham, Kulusevski shared his thoughts in an interview with the Evening Standard

“I’m really looking forward to our task ahead. I believe this is an exciting opportunity for us to embark on a new direction, to play football that embodies the values and traditions of this fantastic football club.”

Under the guidance of Ange Postecoglou, known for his attacking style of play, Tottenham could provide Kulusevski with the perfect platform to rediscover his attacking threat in the upcoming season.

The winger’s flair and skill on the pitch make him an ideal fit for the team’s new direction, as they aim to play a dynamic and vibrant brand of football that excites both players and fans alike.
