Juventus forward Dejan Kulusevski is a target for Tottenham director of football Fabio Paratici, who is a big fan of the Swedish star.

That’s according to La Repubblica, who say Juve have already lined up a replacement in the form of Mikkel Damsgaard.

Cited by TuttoJuve, they say that Kulusevski is ‘not fully convincing’ Juventus and could therefore be sold by the Italian giants at the end of the season.

If they decide to do so, finding a suitor will not be difficult as Tottenham have already lined themselves up for a deal.

Kulusevski is a target for Fabio Paratici, who ‘would like’ to bring him to London to bolster Nuno Espirito Santo’s attacking options.

Indeed, Juventus have already lined up a replacement in Damsgaard, who they ‘followed’ in the summer transfer window after his impressive performances for Denmark at the European Championship.

There’s no mention of what Tottenham would have to pay for Kulusevski at this point or what Juventus would ask for, but it’s more than likely they’d try and recover the £31.5m they paid Atalanta for him in January last year.

Whether that fee or a higher one is what Spurs are willing to pay remains to be seen, but this is the latest in several rumours linking them to Kulusevski.

That means we’re likely to hear plenty more about him in the coming months, even if a deal isn’t unlikely to happen until next summer.
