According to a report from Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus are unwilling to back down on their €35 million asking price for the Swedish winger but Tottenham are hoping to sign him for €25 million.
The report claims that Tottenham ‘must raise’ their offer in order to sign the player in the coming weeks. Apparently, ‘negotiation is open’ between the two clubs and there is a willingness to get the deal done.
Kulusevski does not have a future at the Italian club and it makes sense for Juventus to cash in on him. The Italian outfit need to raise funds through sales after missing out on Champions League qualification.
Tottenham have had a disappointing campaign and they have missed out on Champions League football. They are hoping to get a discount for the Swedish winger because of their limited finances this summer and it remains to be seen how the situation develops.
Kulusevski managed to make an immediate impact at the north London club after joining them under Antonio Conte in January 2022 on an 18-month loan deal, but he has had a mediocre campaign with the Londoners this past season.
However, the 23-year-old is a tremendous talent with a big future ahead of him and he could develop into a key player for Tottenham in the coming seasons. Spurs need to add more quality to their attack and they should look to get the deal done before the summer transfer window closes.
