Arsenal make Kulusevski contact

Arsenal have made contact with the representatives of Dejan Kulusevski over a potential transfer from Juventus, according to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.

Asked if there was a chance for the Sweden international to join Arsenal or Tottenham Hotspur in January, Di Marzio said the Gunners would be the favourites in such a race, having already contacted his agents, and that Juventus would want around €35 million plus bonuses for his services. The journalist pointed to the conclusion that the matter pretty much depends on Arsenal’s determination to get a deal done and whether they are willing to meet the asking price.

Having left his homeland in 2016, Kulusevski joined the Under-17 side at Atalanta and rose through the ranks there. He reached the first team three years later and was immediately sent out on loan to Parma, where Juventus took note of his talent and signed him the following summer. The winger then had another season with Parma, before finally getting a chance to play for the Old Lady in 2020.

Primarily a winger, the 21-year-old has played in a variety of midfield roles, as well as a central striker. In all competitions, he has 65 appearances, eight goals and nine assists for Juventus so far.
