Tottenham Hotspur are now making progress in their move to sign Dejan Kulusevski on a permanent basis from Juventus.
It was reported yesterday that Spurs were looking at a discount from Juve to sign the Swede on a permanent basis, with Juve sticking to the €35 million option to buy that was initially inserted in his loan deal but Spurs looking to offer only €25 million.
Sky Italia now state that an agreement is inching closer between the two parties and it can be reached for a fee of €30 million. Positive contacts have taken place between the two parties in the last few hours today and it can lead to an outcome soon enough, with Tottenham looking likely to seal the deal.
Kulusevski had joined Spurs on an initial loan deal in the January of 2022 and Spurs would’ve had the obligation to buy him permanently if they had qualified for the Champions League this season. But since they haven’t, they only have an option to buy him.
