Tottenham chief Fabio Paratici moves for January transfer reunion with Juventus star

Tottenham are considering a January move for Juventus forward Dejan Kulusevski.

Spurs’ new managing director of football, Fabio Patrici, is a hug fan of the 21-year-old Swede and is keen to be reunited with him, having taken him to Turin during his time as director of football at Juve.

Kulusevski, who has won 15 caps for Sweden, has struggled to nail down a starting berth for the Italian giants this season after making 47 appearances in all competitions last time out.

He scored seven goals and chipped in with seven assists in the last campaign.

This season, though, he has made just one start in Serie A and has otherwise been limited to cameo appearances from the bench.

Tottenham sent scouts to watch Kulusevski in Champions League action against Malmo earlier this month but he was only given seven minutes at the end of the game.

They will keep monitoring his situation and, if he continues to struggle to find a place in Max Allegra’s starting line-up, then they will look to see if a deal can be done when the transfer window next opens.

Nuno’s side face Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday, looking to bounce back after consecutive 3-0 defeats against Crystal Palace and Chelsea.

They did not respond well to falling behind in either game and he admitted this week that they need to respond better to adversity.

“It’s real, it’s something that is happening to us. So we are working on that aspect, not only the mental aspect of the situation but how to react as a team.

“Is there anything we can do to handle those situations better? First of all, the confidence that we have – and that we must have.

“Just to use a simple example of boxing, with people talking about the big occasion on Saturday night, you cannot spend every round throwing punches.

“Sometimes you have to protect yourself. If you get a punch, instead of opening your guard, you should close your guard and respect that your opponent also has these moments.

“So using this simple situation (as an example) tells us a lot of what we should do – so we are organised, we are stable, we are solid.

“No matter what happens, we must keep on doing that.”
