Tottenham Hotspur have announced the signing of Dejan Kulusevski on a permanent deal from Juventus. 

The 23-year-old has been impressive for Tottenham since joining the club on an 18-month loan in January last year. 

He has weighed in with 23 goal contributions in 57 appearances for Spurs across all competitions.

His impressive displays have convinced Tottenham to sign him for £25 million on a five-year deal.

Spurs endured a disappointing 2022-23 campaign, finishing eighth in the Premier League table to miss out on European qualification. 

Manager Antonio Conte left in acrimonious circumstances in March, with the club placing Cristian Stellini in temporary charge.

The Italian was soon replaced by Ryan Mason, who ultimately failed to revive the club’s fortunes.

Kulusevski was one of the few players who impressed with his performances last campaign. 

The 23-year-old missed several games in October due to injury but still played 30 Premier League matches, bagging two goals and seven assists. 

The Sweden international mainly plays as an attacking midfielder but can also be used as a winger, a number 10 or a false nine. 

He averaged 1.4 shots, 1.6 key passes and 1.7 dribbles per game in the English top flight, boasting over 82 percent passing accuracy. 

Signing Kulusevski for only £25m represents a significant coup for Spurs, who will be aiming to perform much better in the domestic competitions next term.
