Two of Antonio Conte’s transfer targets have been hijacked by rivals. Adama Traore was taken by Barcelona, as well as Luis Diaz was taken by Liverpool. The Italian manager then turned his attention to an old transfer target of his era at Inter, the player who is still only 21 years old.
This transfer window is not very friendly for Conte. Maybe also because of the image of Tottenham Hotspur which is not liked by the players. Wolves winger Adama Traore has chosen his old club Barcelona over this fellow Premier League team. Likewise Luis Diaz, who was nicknamed “Cristiano Ronaldo of Colombia” was successfully obtained by Liverpool.
With two of his target transfer targets gone before his eyes, Conte opted to switch to the third player he once wanted to sign as Inter manager, namely Dejan Kulusevski.
The 21-year-old Swede’s contract at Juventus runs until 2025, but Spurs feel confident they can persuade him to move. Kulusevski has played in 20 Serie A games for Juventus this 2021/22 season but has started only half of those games, completing the full 90 minutes just three times. This situation will make Kulusevski seriously consider another club that will give him more playing time.
A left-footed forward, Kulusevski will be deployed on the left in the attacking trio with Harry Kane in the middle and Son Heung-min on the right of Conte’s formation at Tottenham Hotspur, as he looks to clinch a Champions League spot that will give a windfall overall. financial.
