Tottenham Hotspur had an option to make Juventus forward Dejan Kulusevski’s loan stay permanent for €35m but decided against using it.

After the final fixture of last season in May, the 23-year-old admitted he’ll hold talks with the north London club to have more clarity over his future.

Tuttosport have a report explaining what will happen to those Juve players who were out on loan last season, and the winger gets a mention.

It’s said the former Parma man’s situation at Tottenham is still being defined, even though the latter have decided against exercising the €35m buying option.

That’s because Spurs, who are in talks to buy the Sweden international, want a discount from the Old Lady. In short, the report states ‘the negotiation is open’ between the two clubs and it’s possible the discussions could go beyond this week.

Monday’s Corriere dello Sport also states Tottenham are asking for a discount from Juve. They add Spurs wouldn’t be willing to exceed €25-30m to buy the Swede.

Kulusevski scored two goals and registered eight assists from 37 games last season at Tottenham.
