Arsenal have reportedly pounced on Dejan Kulusevski and here are the four reasons why the Sweden winger could move to North London in January.
Kulusevski joined Juventus on a €44m deal from Atalanta one year ago.
He had just played his first full season in Serie A, scoring ten goals and delivering nine assists in 39 appearances with Parma where he had arrived on loan in 2019.
However, ‘Kulu’ has failed to justify his price tag and Juventus are more than open to selling the Swede international for a fair offer in the winter transfer window.
An offer in the region of €30m would be enough to sell Kulusevski. His amortised cost at the end of June was in the region of €25m, so any offer above that would guarantee a capital gain for the Bianconeri.
Juventus are also open to selling Kulusevski to raise their transfer budget for January and make room for a new striker or midfielder.
Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic has snubbed a move to Arsenal and is Juventus priority target to strengthen their attack either in January or at the end of the season.
However, Juventus want to buy a new midfielder as well, with Axel Witsel, Aurélien Tchouaméni and Paul Pogba all linked with a move to Turin.
Pogba sees his Manchester United contract expire at the end of the season and, according to reports in Italy, a return to the Allianz Stadium is his priority.
Kulusevski is keen to get more playing time and the Premier League seems the right place for him to develop given his physical and technical skills.
He is not in Allegri’s plan having averaged 32 minutes per game this season, so the coach would give the green light to his sale under the right conditions.
