Tottenham have fully recruited striker Kulusevski.
Tottenham announced the full signing of Kulusevski on the 18th (Korean time). Kulusevski, who joined Tottenham on loan through the transfer market last winter, ended the lease and completely transferred to Tottenham.
Tottenham said, ‘Kulusevski has completed an 18-month lease and has signed a contract with Tottenham until 2028’. Kulusevski has scored seven goals in 57 appearances for Tottenham.
The British Guardian said on the 18th, ‘Tottenham agreed to pay Juventus a transfer fee of 30 million euros (approximately 41.9 billion won) for the complete transfer of Kulusevski. There was an option to transfer completely for Kulusevski’s transfer fee of 35 million euros (approximately 48.9 billion won), but Tottenham renegotiated the transfer fee.’
Tottenham signed Kulusevski on a full transfer condition after renting it in the transfer market in January of last year. Tottenham stayed in 8th place in the Premier League in the 2022-23 season, failing to qualify for the UEFA Club Competition as well as the UEFA Champions League스포츠토토.
After joining Tottenham in the middle of the 2021-22 season, Kulusevski made a big success, scoring 5 goals and 7 assists in 18 Premier League games. On the other hand, in the 2022-23 season, he played 30 Premier League games and scored 2 goals and 8 assists, not performing as expected.
Tottenham pushed for renegotiations with Juventus over the transfer fee for the full signing of Kulusevski. England’s To the Rain & Bag said last month, ”Kulusevski will return to Juventus after completing his Tottenham loan. Kulusevski, who ended his 18-month loan at the end of this season, is likely to return to Juventus. “Tottenham will not exercise their option to fully sign Kulusevski for 35 million euros,” he said. In the end, Tottenham confirmed the complete recruitment of Kulusevski for an amount less than 5 million euros (approximately 7 billion won) than the transfer fee previously contracted.
Tottenham will start preparing for the 2023-24 season in earnest from next month with the appointment of new manager Postecoglu. Tottenham will play its first pre-season match against West Ham United on the 18th of next month. Tottenham will play the first round of the 2023-24 season Premier League against Brentford on August 13.
