Tottenham Hotspur are close to completing the permanent signing of Dejan Kulusevski from Italian giants Juventus.
The Swedish international has spent the last 18 months and has established as a first-team regular in a front three alongside Heung Min-Son and England captain Harry Kane, keeping out summer signing Brazilian Richarlison in the process.

Despite Spurs being under new management this summer, Kulusevski’s consistency has convinced Ange Postecoglou that he remains a key part of Spurs’ long-term plans. The winger was initially brought to Tottenham in January 2022 alongside defensive midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur by former Director of Football Fabio Paratici, who announced his resignation in April.
