Update On The Future Of This Tottenham Hotspur Loanee: What Should Spurs Do?

Must Read

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent segment on Youtube, journalist Alasdair Gold offered an update on the future of Tottenham Hotspur loanee Dejan Kulusevski who is set to return to Juventus soon. Gold said,

“Certainly the expectation still seems to be within Spurs, that he’s coming. But obviously, you’ll been reading the reports that are coming out of Italy of them thinking he might be going back.

“Unless Spurs are just waiting to see the director of football and manager first to say: do you definitely want Deki [Kulusevski]?

“Personally, I think it’d be mad not to. I think it’d be an incredibly daft decision not to. Because, let’s be honest, in whatever formation I think someone’s going to come in and play, I think he fits it, he is that versatile.

“And for me, £30m for a player like Deki, 23 years old, who again, like I say of the other young players, is not anywhere near his peak yet.”

Kulusevski’s Recent Form At Tottenham

Kulusevski has experienced a campaign of mixed emotions in North London as he failed to help Spurs earn a top-four spot in the Premier League. Still, the 23-year-old has done well to score two goals and earn eight assists in 37 appearances for Tottenham this season across multiple competitions.

The Sweden international has caught the eye by averaging 2.2 shots, 2.8 key passes and 1.4 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Premier League. He has even been excellent when distributing the ball in the final third after completing 82.5% of his attempted passes in the English top tier (stats via whoscored).

What Should Tottenham Hotspur Do With Regards To Kulusevski?

Kulusevski can create space for himself to get some strikes in at goal and has got the eye to unlock the opponent’s defence with a killer pass in the final third. He remains a good dribbler with the ball and can be a hard man to dispossess in and around the opposition penalty box.

The Swedish sensation is a technically gifted footballer who usually operates on the right-winger but can also play as an attacking midfielder if needed.

Kulusevski is currently one of the most important members of Tottenham‘s squad. Hence, Spurs simply cannot afford to lose him when his loan spell runs out later this summer. The North London outfit would be wise to try everything they can to make his stay permanent at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
