People around Tottenham Hotspur feel Dejan Kulusevski’s deal is as good as permanent now after his electric start to life in north London.
This is according to football journalist Fabrizio Romano, who was discussing his delight for the Swedish winger, who made the move to the Premier League in January.
Should Spurs sign Kulusevski this summer?
Kulusevski added yet another assist to his name at the weekend in Tottenham’s emphatic victory over Newcastle United as he teed up Son Heung-min for the Lilywhites’ third of the afternoon.
The 21-year-old has initially joined Spurs on loan from Juventus, however, it is believed there is the option for Spurs to buy as well as an obligation if certain targets are met.
However, just two months into his time at Spurs, Romano claimed on the Here We Go podcast that there are people around Spurs who already feel he will be signed permanently.
He said: “I can tell you that Tottenham sources see Kulusevski already as a Tottenham player for the future. So it’s just a matter of when they will pay the option and the clause, but they will get it done.”
TIF Thoughts on Romano’s comments…
We think this will come to the delight of most Spurs fans as Kulusevski has made a stunning start to life with his new side, in which he has netted twice and provided five assists.
Despite signing late in January, there is no player with more assists (Harry Kane is equal) since the turn of the year in the Premier League.
And given the 21-year-old has settled so quickly and made such a big impact, it could be viewed as a good way for Spurs to save themselves some money with the option to buy Kulusevski €5m (£4.1m) cheaper than the target-based mandatory clause.
