In the second half of last season, it was ‘good luck’, but this season is different. There is a full transfer option, but it is still not triggered. Dejan Kulusevski wants to hear Tottenham’s plans.
Kulusevski is a Swedish midfielder born in 2000. He started playing for Juventus after passing through Atalanta and Parma, and scored 4 goals and 3 assists in 35 Italian Serie A matches in the 2020-21 season. However, in the first half of last season, his position slightly decreased. He played 20 league games, but only made 5 starts.안전놀이터
In the midst of this, Tottenham showed interest in Kulusevski. Then-coach Antonio Conte, who took over during the season, planned to reinforce his power to rebound in the second half. Accordingly, Kulusevski was hired on loan through the transfer market in January. His contract was for 18 months, and a mandatory recruitment clause related to his individual performance and team performance was inserted.
In the second half of last season, Kulusevski was a blessing in disguise. Kulusevski, who played as the main striker along with Son Heung-min and Harry Kane, scored 5 goals and 8 assists in 18 English Premier League (EPL) matches. Thanks to his performance, Tottenham finished fourth in the league and succeeded in advancing to the UEFA Champions League (UCL) in three years.
This season, except for the injury variable, he is playing as a key player, but the atmosphere is the same as last season. Harry Kane and Son Heung-min are clear starters, and it is Kulusevski who is competing with Richarlison.
Now is the time to decide where to go. Kulusevski’s loan deal ends this summer. Initially, it was reported that Tottenham would pursue a complete recruitment. Kulusevski also said at the end of July: “Conte’s future will not affect my transfer. I want to stay at Tottenham.”
But lately, other news is coming out. ‘Calcio Mercato’ said: “With the departure of coach Conte and general manager Paratici, Tottenham have no justification for signing Kulusevski outright. They plan to send him back to Juventus this summer. If the conditions are met, Kulusevsky can be fully recruited for 35 million euros (approximately 51 billion won).”
In this situation, Kulusevski said: “I love Tottenham, but I want to know what their thoughts are and what the future holds. I will talk to the club and I want to hear what their plans are.”
